Sad way that he went in the end, if his diary is anything to go by...
Cheers!

I haven't read his diaries actually, my dad has just started reading a copy of his autobiography which is what prompted me to use him on my avatar. I loved carry on films when I was younger and I can also remember him from Wilo the Wisp. There was also a programme on about him some time ago and I never realised that there was such sadness in his life as he'd always been this funny, comic figure to me.

Well....the young guy who had the huge deep voice that they all loved, IS in the final 22. So he is in with a great chance of winning.

Just trying to fit in with the colour scheme! It was pink for a while yesterday but that just made me look sunburnt!

Photoshop is fun!

WOW!! I am so impressed.
Tilli, your avatar is great (again).

Back on topic: Why is it in these sort of shows it's always the 2nd placers who end up coming up trumps whilst the winners generally fade into obscurity? Is it that whole 'Brits love the underdog thing'?

I think the majority of the people who vote in these shows are a certain type of person who probably don't know much about music. Also the winners have to do exactly what Simon Cowell or whoever tells them while the runners up can do more of their own thing and probably make better music by doing this.

Whatever happened to Michelle McManus?

The latter.....u know it!

It actually seems that right now, only Girls Aloud seem to have made a lasting name for themselves, since being on Pop Idol. (It was Pop Idol wasnt it?!)
Whichever show it was, they seem to have shaken off the 'reality show' tag.

Will Young I guess has done the same too, tho I havent heard him release anything in a while, i'm sure the next time he does it will be a top 5 hit.

Poor Steve Brookstein tho...despite his single and then the album both reaching no.1, he has been ditched by Simon Cowell and is now considering going back to his pub playing!
He never really stood out for me at all actually...just a normal guy with an average voice...
If Tabby had won that series, I reckon he would've gone down a whole lot better. But I think HE is yet to release anything yet actually...

So really, only G4 have been popular since the last series of X Factor - and they didnt even win!

Who knows. She was on "You are what you eat" a couple of months ago as she'd gained a lot of weight post-pop idol.

Ha! That's right - I saw that too.
Quite funny actually, she got really pissy with the presenter when all she was doing was trying to help her, by telling her the right things to eat!
