Retarded enough to think that we believe every stupid story about the judges bickering behind the scenes, evidently. It’s a yearly event: before the show has started, as part of their marketing campaign to get us interested, the judges are routinely ‘at each other’s throats’. ‘According to sources’. For ‘sources’ read ‘the X Factor press office work experience’.
There’s usually a misogynist spin to the whole thing (because women really don’t like each other and can’t wait to put each other down at every opportunity), which this year is taking the form of the tension between Dannii and Cheryl off-of Girls Aloud already reaching a ‘dangerous level’.
Simon is apparently smitten with Cherly and is calling her the new Cilla Black (what, deluded and can’t speak properly?) and Dannii is feeling ‘increasingly isolated’.
