X Factor Suffers Drop Outs

Lascel Wood doesn't make X Factor finals

Lascel Wood doesn't make X Factor finals

What’s happened to the X Factor contestants this year? Some have been booted out, some have left willingly and one act may have to drop out later in the series. And we haven’t even reached the live finals yet!

This weekend, we saw the final acts being chosen for the judge’s houses. Some promising hopefuls didn’t make the cut, but for all the wrong reasons. Producers may have been impressed by Lascel Wood’s vocal efforts, but on hearing that he was an internet porn star, they swiftly informed the judges not to choose him for the next stage of the competition. It’s a family show people! Sian Phillips also had a healthy pair of lungs on her, but didn’t make it through to Kelly Rowland’s house in Miami because of a criminal record. If you’ve spent two month’s in jail for drunken assault don’t expect to be getting a US visa anytime soon.

Essex ladies 2 Shoes were a surprising pick for the groups but, if the rumours are true, their luck could be running out. Apparently, if they make it through to the live shows, Charley Bird will be nearly eight months pregnant. Good news for Charley, bad news for 2 Shoes! And finally…that crazy woman Goldie Cheung. She quit the show! Officially, she pulled out at the judges’ houses stage because ‘she would miss her family’. Unofficially, her husband thought she would be ridiculed on national television. Didn’t she bring that on herself though? What with the leg over Gary Barlow, the crazy dancing, provocative gyrating and suggestive outfits? Just sayin’…I’m intrigued to see who replaces her in the Over 25’s category. No doubt Louis will have his eye on another quirky character!
