The X Factor 2015: 10 very important teasers about tonight's episode

5 hours ago

The X Factor is back for another slice of audition fun tonight, and it's an action-packed show... but what sorts of things can you expect from the episode?

1. An Olly Murs lookalike tries out for the judges - but they don't just share a similar face. (All we'll say is that the movie Single White Female gets a namecheck.)

2. Last week we had backing dancers and an impressive video package. Tonight? One act actually brings fire on stage. (We're not being metaphorical.)

3. "You kind of remind me of Stevi Ritchie." (No, Louis Walsh isn't back.)

4. Rita Ora gets so upset after one particularly difficult 'no' that Simon gives her a hug. (Well, half a hug. A back pat. It all counts.)

5. Cheryl gives one act a yes before he's even sung... because he's from Newcastle.

6. "Rita said you smashed it. I'd say you 'slightly cracked it'."

7. Simon is very disagreeable during some auditions. »

Daniel Baldwin leaves the Celebrity Big Brother house in the first live eviction

7 hours ago

Daniel Baldwin has left Celebrity Big Brother following the first live eviction of the series.

The actor exited the house after losing the public vote this evening (September 4).

Janice Dickinson, Jenna Jameson, Stevi Ritchie & Chloe Jasmine, Chris Ellison and Farrah Abraham all successfully escaped eviction.

Speaking to Emma Willis after leaving the house, Daniel said he was surprised to see himself at the bottom of the public vote.

He did, however, reason that he might have been voted out as he didn't impose himself by engaging in confrontations with other housemates.

Regarding the "infamous cigarette incident" with Stevi & Chloe, Daniel explained that it took place as a result of the 'UK/Us cultural divide'.

The actor also said he finds it "astonishing" that Chris revealed he 'didn't listen' to other housemates.

Finally, Daniel also described Janice as a "pain in the arse" to live with.

X Factor contestant Mason Noise reacts to being called "an arsehole" by Simon Cowell: "He lost control"

7 hours ago

Outspoken X Factor contestant Mason Noise has fired back after being called an "arsehole" by judge Simon Cowell.

Tensions between the two boiled over during the Six-Chair Challenge, when Mason complained about his screen time in last weekend's premiere.

"Why is it I only got a 47-second part on the show when others got 10-minute timeslots?" he argued.

Cowell responded: "Don't tell me how long you should have on this show. You should feel lucky to be on this show. Why don't you shut up?"

Noise was ultimately led off stage to chants of "off" from the crowd, but is now telling The Mirror that he stands by his behaviour.

"[Simon] lost control and it was uncalled for. Especially as all I was doing was saying an opinion," the musician insisted.

Noise later added: "I think that no one has ever questioned him before and no one has questioned the format of the show. »

Rowan Atkinson celebrates 25 years of Mr Bean by recreating classic car scene at Buckingham Palace

12 hours ago

Anybody enjoying a trip to Buckingham Palace today was also treated to a free performance by Mr Bean, as Rowan Atkinson celebrated the character's 25th anniversary in style.

The much-loved buffoon recreated one of his finest moments, attempting to drive his green Mini while sat on top of an armchair, steering the wheel with a mop, and with Teddy by his side.

Mr Bean was first seen in St James's Park, enjoying an ice cream and taking a selfie next to the London Eye. Too bad he didn't climb on board.

A police escort then followed him down the Mall before he came to a halt outside Buckingham Palace and was joined by a large crowd of fans waiting to wish him a happy birthday (although his actual birthday is on September 15, the eager beaver).

Ooooh it's all too much excitement for Teddy!!! #MrBean25 pic.twitter.com/47N8vhIbN7

The X Factor is well and truly under way, and we've been keeping an eye on everything that's been going on...

When is The X Factor on TV?

The show kicked off on August 29 - and in fact, in an attempt to avoid any clashes with Strictly Come Dancing, ITV bosses have unveiled the full schedule right from the off, so we know everything that's coming. You can get a proper look at it here, but auditions continue until Saturday, September 19 with boot camp kicking off on September 20. That's the first of five boot camp shows - two set in a country house, and then three episodes of the dreaded Six Chair Challenge.

And the grand final? »
