26 July 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The professional dancer was alleged to have been left in tears after a confrontation with Karen Hauer last year during training for a group dance.

Jordan, married to former Strictly professional James Jordan, added that romances happen quite often on the show.

"It happens in the movies with actors and it happens on Strictly," she said. "There have been relationships that have happened that have never come out in public, quite a bit.

Jo Brand has slammed 'Britain's Got Talent' as ''cruel''. The 57-year-old comedienne - who acted as a judge on ITV celebrity reality show 'Splash!' - has slammed the channel's talent shows, claiming they exploit people with mental illnesses. She said: ''I have a huge ambivalence to shows like 'The X Factor' and particularly 'Britain's Got Talent' because I think they wheel on people who have mental health problems for other people to laugh about.

Cheryl Cole Shows Us Skin Tone Style Done Right—See Her Impeccable Look!

24 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cheryl Cole is making us say something we try never, ever to say: we were wrong. We've spent the last few days ragging on celebrities in awkward skin-suits (sorry Chrissy Teigen and Maggie Gyllenhaal) but The X Factor judge is making us sing a very different tune about the body-colored shade. This Zuhair Murad Couture is as drop dead gorgeous as it gets! So where did this newlywed go right where others have gone wrong? First off, the tone of this look is slightly more pink than yellow, making the overall look more rosy than "skin." Yes, Cheryl's tanned complexion helps balance that, but the base color of the dress plays a huge part. The second factor is a diversity of fabric. We have lace, chiffon and »

Cher Lloyd wants to confront Louis Walsh over "spoilt child" comments

21 July 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Cher Lloyd has said that she wants to confront Louis Walsh after he called her a "spoilt child".

Last year, Walsh named Lloyd as the most difficult act to work with on The X Factor, reigniting a war of words between the pair.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the singer said that she hoped her former X Factor colleague would express his feelings to her face in future.

"It's something I find very strange, especially from an older gentleman against a young girl," she said. "But I'm much older and much more experienced, so it would be good to have a conversation with him now.

"To make a comment about someone you worked with two or three years ago who was 16 years old at the time, it was a little bit unnecessary. I must be on his mind. Bless."

When asked if she had bumped into Walsh recently, she joked: "No, »

X Factor flash vote axed

21 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

'The X Factor' has axed the controversial flash vote gimmick. Show bosses have ditched the unpopular feature, which was introduced last year, from the new series after receiving backlash from viewers. The flash vote allowed viewers to vote to save their favourite acts during the Saturday live shows. Fans were given just 10 minutes to place their calls and host Dermot O'Leary would then announce the contestant with the lowest number of votes at the end of the show, with the unlucky wannabe going straight into the sing-off in the Sunday night results show.

21 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Dannii Minogue has revealed that she is recording new music and discussing further television projects.

The singer told Fault magazine that she has new material in the pipeline but does not want to release anything until she is sure that it is "special".

"I'm just trying out loads of different stuff with no pressure of a record company or a deal or a date or anything.

"I'm just seeing if I can find that something special but, again, it's been so long since I've done it that I don't want to come back with something unless it's special."

Minogue, who has served as a judge on The X Factor in the UK and her native Australia, also said that she has been planning a move into the production side of television. »

TV's singing competitions: welcome to the age of fame entitlement

20 July 2014 8:32 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

When it comes to age, fame-chasing doesn't discriminate, as contestants on The X Factor and The Voice Kids prove

Who'd want to be famous? Judging by what's on TV apparently everyone, of all ages, including infants. And, if this trend of bringing more stages of life into the talent contest universe continues, no doubt ghosts soon as well (yeah, scoff now, but you won't when The Voice Afterlife hits screens in 2015).

For those of you harbouring fame-chasing desires, theres a Kim Kardashian app featuring the ability to "create your own aspiring celebrity". You hear that? The mere act of aspiring to be a celebrity is apparently worthy as a playable feature of a game these days. I suppose it makes life easier for games developers: in the next Assassins Creed youll just aspire to be an assassin while working in a cafe for your uncle. The end game boss is a difficult customer. »

Fox’s Peter Rice Reassures Creative Community About Network/Studio Consolidation

20 July 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox Networks Group Chairman-ceo Peter Rice was pressed into TV Critics Assn. tour service on Sunday, what with Kevin Reilly having been let go as entertainment chief and his replacements, Dana Walden and Gary Newman, have been in the job about 15 minutes. Yet the exec spent the morning leaving doors open — on another day of “24,” or “Bones,” for example — while trying to reassure Hollywood’s creative community about the studio’s new vertically integrated network/studio alignment.

Placing both 20th Century Fox Television and the Fox network under the same executive duo, Rice said, is a way of telling the talent community, “You can speak to us with a single voice now.” He stressed that the studio would continue to sell to other networks, as it already does, and said of the more cohesive voice, “I think it’s going to be good for us, and I think it’s »
