X Factor's 'random' Jukebox picks Fright Night theme for Halloween and no one is buying it


The X Factor 2016's 'random' jukebox has spoken and this weekend is Halloween week.

Yesterday evening saw the latest live show and it was Relley C who left The X Factor last night and bowed out of the competition.

She was eliminated in the sing off against Four Of Diamonds, while Ryan Lawrie was saved from the bottom three (again) thanks to the new 'life line' vote twist.

After the gut-wrenching elimination, host Dermot O’Leary was joined on stage by the remaining nine contestants to decide the next theme.

Dermot gave the new X Factor Jukebox wheel its latest spin last night to reveal to the remaining contestants and the viewers at home the following week’s theme.

And the third theme chosen supposedly randomly by the Jukebox for next weekend was Fright Night.

Handy, given next weekend is Halloween.

Dermot insisted the result was totally bona fide and not at all set up, but basically no one believed it for a second.




Presumably it was just a delightful coincidence.

The X Factor 2016 continues next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM with the spontaneous Halloween special.
