It was scary interview time for the final five when all those embellishments on their CVs would be ruthlessly exposed as utter lies by Claude and his rottweiler mates
Did you enjoy that? I’ll pop down into the comments now to find out. I did. But I can’t feel my hands. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to find out that I hallucinated the whole liveblog and just “thought” all of this without actually typing it. If this turns out to be the case, sorry!
See you here on Sunday for one final dose of this absolute lunacy. Everyone bring in boardgames. It’s the end of term!

"Usually I'd go through the whole process of the show before the final," she noted. "But eventually I sat down and warmed into it, took a deep breath and I guess once you've done it twice, it does kind of come as a second nature."
The ex-n-Dubz singer, who had also returned for the ITV show's Judges' Houses section with Louis Walsh earlier in the series, explained that she was eager to get back into work following the collapse of her drug trial.
"Even though the trial was over I still felt like »
Jake Quickenden is tipped to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother'. The former 'The X Factor' contestant - and this year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' runner up - is odds on favourite at the bookmakers to join the Channel 5 show. TV veteran Keith Chegwin, 57, was ahead in the early betting at 5-1 whilst Jake was at 6-1. But betting company, Coral, last night slashed Jake's odds to 4-1 after an increase in support flooded in for the 26-year-old singer. Coral's Nicola McGeady told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Jake may not have won over the 'X Factor' viewers but »

Ben Haenow has spoken for the first time since his X Factor victory.
The Croydon-born 29-year-old, who beat Fleur East in last night's final, said during an appearance on This Morning that his triumph "feels like a dream" - and hinted that he will propose to his long-term girlfriend Jessica Jones soon.
"It feels like a dream still. I can't get my head around it... I don't think until I get a couple of weeks to sit back from it that it'll actually sink in," said Haenow. "But I can't believe it."
Schofield had opted for third-placed Andrea Faustini from Mel B's boys category, while Holden had successfully predicted Haenow and "the boys who have »
Waissel returned to the programme for the 'Greatest Hits' performance on Saturday night (December 13), but was spotted at the end of the routine mouthing: "You owe me" at Simon Cowell.
She has now confirmed in her column for New! that she did indeed mouth those words, but insisted that she has no hard feelings towards Cowell.
"I see viewers are fantastic lip readers and yes, I did say, 'You owe me one'. Simon and I are as close as pennies in a purse and yes there are very exciting things to look forward to for next year, »
Well, we're not quite ready to say goodbye just yet, so we've collected some of our favourite moments of the series. We're not talking performances as such - we're talking all the silly sideshow bits and bobs that have made this series. Are any as good as Jedward doing their own backing vocals or Rachel Adedeji falling over? We'll leave that up to you to decide.
So without further ado, here they are, in no particular order...
1. Only The Young shouty man
We're not quite sure when we started noticing Only The Young shouty man, but that's just because it feels like he's always been there. The over-exuberant supporter has invaded our consciousness to such an extent »
One of the most interesting parts of the annual X Factor jamboree is picking through the voting statistics when it's all done and dusted.
We found out on Sunday night (December 14) that while Andrea Faustini topped the first three weeks of the official vote, Ben Haenow edged him out in week four and stayed there until the end, increasing his tally each week on his way to victory.
While our own on-site vote has been pretty solid for predicting which candidate will be eliminated, what's most striking is how much better Fleur East did with Digital Spy readers than the wider public.
Below, we present the full Digital Spy voting stats for the year gone by, along with a table for you fans of data journalism.
Week 1 - Number #1s
Week 2 - '80s Hits
Week 3 - Songs from the Movies
Week 4 - Fright Night
Week 5 - Queen vs Michael Jackson »
Ben Haenow's estranged father was at the 'X Factor' final last night (14.12.14). The 29-year-old star was crowned winner of the ITV talent show last night and he's revealed his dad - who left him and his family when he was just a toddler - was in the crowd to cheer him to victory. Speaking on 'Lorraine' about rebuilding their relationship, Ben said: ''He was actually there on the Sunday night. It's the first time they [his mum and dad] have been in the same kind of room together for a long time but I think it was a proud moment for »
The message, or so they’d have us believe, was that this was the closest series of X Factor ever. Time and time again, we were told that anyone could grasp victory. But, in truth, the winner was never going to be anyone but Ben Haenow. When the traditional weekly results breakdown was released straight after the final, it was revealed that Ben had been getting more votes than anyone else for the last seven weeks of the show.
Even last week, when Ben’s chief competitor Fleur East took Uptown Funk and – to borrow some of X Factor’s stock quotes – gave it 100% and made it her own, Ben still received 12% more of the public vote than her. »

Song given an early release in the wake of X Factor performances shoots straight to the top of the charts
Just over a week after Fleur East performed Uptown Funk on The X Factor, pre-empting the official version, Mark Ronson’s throwback single has become his first UK No 1. The overnight hit, rushed forward for release, sold 118,000 copies between Monday evening and midnight on Saturday.
“It’s pretty much the coolest thing ever,” Ronson told OfficialCharts.com. It’s certainly been marketed as a surprise: Uptown Funk was not scheduled to be released until 11 January, and East reportedly apologised to Ronson for giving it an early TV premiere. Then again, the official video has been available since mid-November, and conspiracy theorists have pointed to the links between Ronson’s Sony-owned record label and Simon Cowell’s Syco. Lily Allen suggested this spontaneous furore could have been a set-up.

But did he deserve to become the show's 2014 champion?
The X Factor concluded tonight on ITV. »
It’s all over! X Factor 2014 has reached its glorious conclusion. Ladies and gentlemen, we have discovered a new star. But enough about Stevi Ritchie, because Ben probably deserves some of your praise too.
Hand on heart, I can’t thank any of you enough for reading and commenting along in these liveblogs. This has been one of my favourite years to liveblog X Factor, and that’s largely down to how game and hilarious (and drunk) you’ve been throughout. Honestly, I couldn’t have done this without you. I have no idea what I’ll liveblog next (please god don’t let it be Stars in their Eyes), but I hope you can join me then too. Now that we’re all such good friends, »

Mel B has thanked the doctors and nurses who looked after her during her hospital stay.
Speaking on tonight's X Factor final, the judge said she was glad to be back in her judge's seat.
She said: "You know, I really missed being here, but thanks to all the doctors and nurses that took care of me and got me here tonight."
Host Dermot O'Leary then asked her star if she was feeling better now, to which she replied: "Yes...ish".
She then addressed the departure of her finalist Andrea Faustini, who left the competition during last night's show (December 13).
Mel B said: "I was texting him all evening. He did such a good job! He made the final!"
Even more exciting than that, we're also hoping for an update on whether Labrinth ever had his wisdom teeth out...
22:01Anyway, that's it everyone! With one last plug for the tour, we're over and out. Goodnight all!
21:59There are too many X Factor finalists there with shaved sides of their heads. »
