Give hope­fuls more of a chance

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

THE X Fac­tor’s “Boot Camp” phase took place in the cen­tre of Liver­pool, with a sur­prise ap­pear­ance by JLS.

If the show rat­ings continue to flop at the cur­rent rate, next year they will have to move four miles north – and call it “Boo­tle Camp”, with a sur­prise ap­pear­ance by DSS.

The JLS boys de­liv­ered a stir­ring pep talk, say­ing who­ever worked hard­est and “wanted it most” would win the ti­tle. Then 70 of the 200-odd con­tes­tants were im­me­di­ately axed with­out even get­ting the chance to per­form.

The mak­ers of this show re­ally are nasty bas­tards, aren’t they?

At least the con­tes­tants seem like a de­cent buch.

Well, most of them. Watch out for that James Arthur ( right) – he ap­pears to have stolen Deirdre Bar­low’s specs.
