X Factor - it's all Over!
The X Factor is all over at last. Although Matt Cardle was the overall winner, history proves that he may not be the most successful of the three finalists. Rebecca Ferguson and the boy band One Direction are just as likely to become household names. The final had the biggest viewing figures ever. I think it has a lot more to do with the Cinderella factor than anything else. This was a national panto where the painter and decorator and the painfully shy single mum got to be the stars of the show for once.
