Matt Terry wins the X Factor 2016

10.30 Jonathan's Final Thought Eight weeks ago I started this live blog as an X Factor virgin, having never watched an episode. I honestly came into it with an open mind. I’ve long since aged out of thinking that popularity automatically means something is rubbish. On the whole I want to be like other people, and I want other people to like me. It’s the human condition. Plus, while Strictly Come… → Read More

The X Factor 2016 live shows: week eight – trolls invade stage during Honey G performance

9.56 As ever, I'll post the rest of the performance videos as they become available, but let's give the last word to Simon. 9.52 See? The culprits seem to be online 'prank' group Trollstation, NOT Lee Nelson. (I'm looking forward to the reply I get from his agent on Monday.) This is a reasonable bio of the group, if you're interested. Which you shouldn't be. > #HoneyG's stage invaders… → Read More

Twitter's jaw dropped when a jaguar ate a caiman on last night's Planet Earth II

The BBC makes David Attenborough documentaries for three reasons. * To help sell televisions at Dixons. * To justify the licence fee to Daily Mail readers. * To make viewers’ jaws drop at the natural world. Speaking of jaws, what about that fight between the caiman crocodile and the jaguar on Planet Earth II last night? > Last night I saw a jaguar eat a cayman on #planetearth and I'll never… → Read More

Stephen Colbert and John Oliver on satire under Trump: "Who can make jokes to a sobbing audience?"

Stephen Colbert wants to make one thing clear. “What we did was fake news,” he told a crowd at the Montclair Film Festival, about his time as a 'correspondent' on The Daily Show. “We got on TV and said this is all fake, and we’re gonna make fun of the news. That was fake news." However, many in the United States have since highlighted the propagation of "fake news" on social media as part of the… → Read More

The X Factor 2016: Movie Week – as it happens

2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 OK kiddie-winks, time for a history lesson. Something interesting keeps happening when I mention that I had never watched the X Factor before this live blog: people apologise to me. "Damn, sorry about that," they say. "It's the worst year ever." I have no reference point for this – it certainly seems quite poor, but for all I know this is Simon… → Read More

The X Factor 2016: Movie Week as it happened – Honey G calls out Ed Balls

Roll the credits, we're done with Movie Night. My money is on Middlemas or Lawrie to go out, unless they post a picture of them adopting a puppy on Instagram or something. Matt Terry is being set up as the inevitable winner for reasons that are beyond my understanding, while the more acceptable Honey G gets, the less likely she is to pull off an upset. I'll post the performance videos then let's… → Read More
