It’s almost time for another X Factor 2017 live show and here’s all of the week’s news headlines and gossip!
It’s George Michael week on The X Factor and the song choices are in – SPOILERS!.
Once again the categories will be performing on separate nights before eliminations each evening. A planned quadruple eviction has been CANCELLED, with one just the usual two acts leaving, one on Saturday and one on Sunday night.
“There is some great talent on the show this year,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “Simon thinks it’s unfair to cut the numbers so drastically when contestants are doing so well.”
Those in the danger zone when it comes to the double exit include Sam Black, Jack and Joel and Alisah Bonaobra, according to the latest odds from the bookies.
Meanwhile, adding to the pressure this week is a supposed bug going around the house which forced a number of singers to go on bed and voice rest.
According to the Daily Star newspaper Price Brothers Sean and Conor, Holly Tandy and Matt Linnen have all been ordered to take time out.
Elsewhere, favourite Grace Davies has been accused of ‘diva behaviour’ behind the scenes with mentor Sharon Osbourne supposedly telling her to change her act ahead of Saturday night.
Grace has also been forced to speak out about romance rumours between herself and Matt Linnen, following backstage reports.
The X Factor 2017 is back this Saturday at 8:10PM and Sunday night at 7:30PM on ITV with George Michael week.
As well as new performances from the final 12 acts, there will be guest appearances from Harry Styles and Paloma Faith.
