The X Factor: Only The Young on Reece Bibby's tweet and shouty man

The X Factor eliminees Only The Young have admitted that they were shocked by Reece Bibby's recent tweet - which seemed to suggest he wanted them to leave the competition.

Bibby, a member of Stereo Kicks, apparently tweeted that he'd voted for Only The Young to leave the show in an online poll - though he later claimed that he wasn't in charge of his Twitter account at the time.

"We saw him and we just talked about it - 'What was it about?'" Only The Young's Mikey Bromley told Digital Spy today. "And he claimed it wasn't him, so we were just like, 'Yeah, fair enough'.

"But when we saw it we were a bit like, 'Oh, what?' We weren't angry, we were just a bit like, 'Woah, what was that about?' But what's done is done."

Bromley admitted that he was "a bit" disappointed by the situation,

Only The Young defend Louis Walsh

Only The Young have defended their 'X Factor' mentor Louis Walsh. The four piece - made up of Parisa Tarjomani, Mikey Bromley, Betsy-Blue English and Charlie George - have jumped to the defence of their mentor on the ITV talent show after he struggled to name the eight members of his boy band Stereo Kicks on the live shows last weekend.

X Factor Lauren Platt, Charlie George on "frustrating" romance rumours

The X Factor star Lauren Platt has admitted that she is frustrated by rumours romantically linking her to Only The Young member Charlie George.

Speaking to Digital Spy at the X Factor studios yesterday, Platt insisted she isn't annoyed by the reports but explained that their relationship is strictly platonic.

"It's frustrating, because I personally feel like a girl and a boy can just be friends without things going on," she said. "It's just like me being friends with Fleur except Charlie's a boy, really.

"A lot of my friends back home are boys so to me it doesn't really register in my head sometimes. To other people, obviously a lot of people aren't like that so I can understand why people would think there's something going on. I just think for two of the youngest people in the house, we're handling it a lot more maturely than a lot

Behold Louis Walsh as a Salem witch for Halloween with Only the Young

Burn the witch! No wait, it's just Louis Walsh in fancy dress for Halloween with his X Factor act Only the Young.

The ITV show judge made a terrifying Salem witch - but could have been a better Worzel Gummidge - wearing a puritanical-style smock splattered in blood, a witch's hat and mini cauldron.

He also accessorised with a crooked plastic nose and broomstick.

Only the Young - made up of hopefuls Mikey Bromley, Charlie George, Parisa Tarjomani and Betsy-Blue English - took Walsh trick or treating and also allowed Betsy-Blue and Parisa to draw all over his face.

You wouldn't want to open the door to that.

Mikey dressed as a banana, Charlie went as a rotten apple and Betsy-Blue was an egg to Parisa's bacon.

The band endured a set back last week as they were one of the bottom two acts of the week and had to

From the Observer archive, 1 October 1972: some advice for George Best from Elizabeth Taylor

Movie star Elizabeth Taylor reveals that she is fascinated by football – or at least the brightest talent in the British game

Next Saturday, if you find yourself sitting next to a black-haired beautiful woman with violet eyes who's giving Charlie George a volley, don't chat her up. She's married. Her name is Elizabeth Taylor.

She thinks football has poetry and beautiful movements, but feels she is not an authority on it. "I was fascinated and felt rather sorry for George Best when he went through all his traumas. Fame came to him when he was so young. I've seen it happen to so many young people in the film business. The pressure one gets is enormous and I wonder if managers and, indeed, his critics, understand the pressure of the emotional strain he must have been going through.

"It's a hell of a thing for a lad from his background,

TV review: The Young Ones

These people are trying to get back to their 1975 selves in The Young Ones. Some fell asleep

My girlfriend's cross because I've done stuff to our room without consulting her. I put up swirly patterned curtains and olive-green vinyl on the floor. From the ceiling I hung Airfix model aeroplanes, and on the walls there are now posters of Marc Bolan and Charlie George. "Who are they, what's going on?" she asks and goes to bed in a huff. But then I wake her up when I get in because I take a long run-up and launch myself from quite a distance away, in order to avoid having my ankles grabbed by anything that might be living under the bed. And I leave the bedroom door open all night with the light on outside.

Don't worry, I explain, I'm recreating the experiment from The Young Ones (BBC1), which itself is
