X Factor: Celebrity facing more fix claims as autocue 'gives result away'

Mirror Online Entertainment 2 weeks ago

X Factor : Celebrity is facing more fix claims after an autocue appeared to give away a result.

After Glee star Kevin McHale smashed his performance on Saturday night, judge Louis Walsh got up from his seat and made his way to the golden buzzer to give Kevin a safe seat, and free passage to next week's live show.

But some viewers noticed that before Louis pressed the buzzer, the autocue behind him read "Congrats through to next week".

It left people convinced that the moment was pre-planned.

One took to Twitter to say: "“Congrats. Through to next week” on the autocue. No so spontaneous eh Louis Walsh?"

Another wrote: "Did anyone notice that when Louis pushed the button the autocue said 'congratulations you're through to next week'"

And another said: "Is this that #DanceMonkey song that #kevinmchale is doing? Great performance. BUT did anyone notice the autocue was ready to prompt Dermot to say he was through to next week before Louis had even pressed the button? "

However, it's clear that the autocue changed the moment Louis stood up in order to prompt host Dermot O'Leary's next line.

But some fans are crying fix

If you watch carefully, you can see the autocue scroll onto that page as Louis stands up from his seat, letting Dermot know what he had to say next on the live TV show.

ITV did not want to comment by Mirror Online.

It's not the first fix claims this series has faced.

Viewers have already questioned the show's authenticity after journalist Martin Bashir was saved, despite forgetting the words to his song.

Poor Martin was crooning along to Lionel Richie's Easy when he forgot what was coming next.

He told the audience: "I've forgotten my words - I do apologise" and continued to sway along to the music.

He later told Dermot: "I'm not trying to make excuses but my song had to be changed very late.

"I had to learn my song this morning. I was working on something else.

People thought it was planned, but it's clear is wasn't

"I've been anxious all evening and it just went out of my mind I'm afraid. I apologise."

Simon refused to cast a vote, leaving it up to the public, and viewers were frustrated.

Coronation Street's Victoria Ekanoye and EastEnders star Jonny Labey received few public votes and were sent home.
