Same-sex Strictly, no drama in the Jungle and Stevie out of X-Factor... but does anybody care?
24th November 2014

A newspaper has picked up on a brief performance on Strictly where same-sex couples danced... for all of eight seconds. While columnists might see it as "paving the way" towards same-sex Strictly, changing the sexual politics on mainstream TV, our panel aren't convinced it was anything other than a routine. 

Melanie Sykes proving to be divisive in this year's I'm a Celebrity... Get me out of here, for her no-nonsense approach to the tasks being set. While producers might be wanting a screaming, cowering, disgusted celebrity, Melanie is simply getting on with business and is decidedly unbothered by the whole affair. Frankly, the panel are a little disappointed. 

Finally, the panel wonder if anyone cares for the X Factor anymore? The interest seems to be waning as it takes a beating in the ratings war. With Stevie leaving, the show may have lost its biggest character - and the rest seem to be one homogeneous mess of voices. We hear why the X Factor has lost it's... well, X Factor.
