TV Notes

Its back. The headlong charge to the Christmas Number 1 started last week with the new series of The X Factor. Its sort of a guilty secret, and probably the only programme that ITV makes that’s worth watching nowadays. There’s some terrible singers, but some gems get unearthed.

The video is Jamie Afro’s wonderful audition, singing Sex on Fire by the Kings of Leon. Skip the first 2 minutes to get to the audition proper.

Meanwhile, over on BBC, Shooting Stars is back, in exactly the same format as it had 20 years ago, even down to George Daws. For me, the funniest thing on TV.
