X Factor rocked by contestants’ ‘fixing’ claims

If you thought things were dramatic on I’m A Celebrity this year, spare a thought for the ITV show’s neighbour, The X Factor.

In the latest scandal to rock the show, this year’s finalists have reportedly expressed their anger against Simon Cowell and his fellow judges over their favouritism of Fleur East.

According to the Daily Star, finalists Andrea Faustini, Lauren Platt and Ben Haenow are convinced that the judges’ clear partiality towards Fleur has ensured her win on this year’s show.

A source told the newspaper: “It’s beginning to look obvious the judges want her to win. It may as well be called ‘The F Factor’ – it’s very unfair. It’s been set up perfectly for Fleur to win.”

Fleur has received standing ovations and glowing reports from the judges so far, with her powerful vocals and funky image impressing at every stage.

While it is no doubt a tense time for the finalists, we’re sure the most worthy act will walk away with the title!
