Simon Cowell has caused outrage amongst fans of his ITV series The X-Factor after taking this week’s result to deadlock. ‘Jed-ward’ and Lucie Jones found themselves in the bottom two. Louis Walsh voted to keep the twins in the contest while Danni Minogue and Cheryl Cole both voted to keep Lucie Jones in, Cowell decided to take the vote to deadlock which meant the decision once again went to the public. The contestant with the least number of votes was kicked off the series and this week that was Lucie Jones. 


However, this has sparked anger from legions of X-Factor fans who are hoping this week would spell the end of ‘Jed-ward’ on the series. Many immediately took to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to vent their fury. Within moments groups sprung up on Facebook calling for mass boycotts of next weekend’s editions of The X-Factor in protest. Radio phone-in shows across the country were also inundated with emails; calls and texts from irritate listeners who were moaning about Cowell’s decision to not vote off ‘Jed-ward’.You can email us your opinions on last night’s X-Factor by clicking here >>
