In other news…
...I am now officially down to a 32" waist again, and have been for a couple of weeks now. Woohoo! My hard work at the gym (that has admittedly fallen by the wayside a little bit recently) has paid off!
Also, Gethin and Camilla were robbed. I need to go and watch Saturday's show, because apparently Matt and Flavia danced very well (it's good that Matt finally got a hold on his nerves after last week's abysmal performance), but I think Gethin deserved it more; he's come so far in the last couple of weeks, and he totally deserved a place in the final. I was looking forward to a showdown between him and Alesha. It was a shame that Kelly Brook dropped out a couple of weeks ago, too, on a number of levels ;) She had a similar amount of raw talent as Alesha and it would have been a very interesting final had it been down to the two of them.
Apparently Rhydian was robbed too. I care less about this, having only seen two shows of The X Factor ever (both this series, coincidentally), and not really being a fan of ITV television generally. Two interesting points to note having watched the final with Lorna on Saturday, though:
- Pairing Rhydian with Catherine Jenkins possibly swung the competition somewhat. He really showed her up for the beautiful but talentless <insert your choice of word here> she is, and her mic was too loud in comparison with his. Mind you, her mic will always be too loud for me. I felt dirty having had my ears sullied by her voice.
- Leon's face after his duet with Kylie was an absolute picture. He was a bit starstruck, but by the time he left the stage you could clearly see the dirty thoughts of threesomes with the Minogue sisters running through his mind. They were coming on to him quite a bit (particularly Dannii), it was rather amusing!
