X Factor fix claims: Over 1,000 Ofcom complaints
All the latest news and gossip from The X Factor...
We all saw judge and mentor Louis Walsh change his mind from Carolynne Poole to 'Deadlock!' and how could anyone miss Gary Barlow storming off in a rage... but what many failed to spot was the shadow next to Louis, someone crawling along the floor to speak to the judges as the sing-off took place.
The man in question was show producer Richard Holloway (Simon Cowell's right hand man). Holloway was seen to sidle up to Walsh and whisper in his ear just before the judges deliberations. A strange thing to do and an action that's sparked the latest stream of fix allegations. Why would anyone need or want to speak to the judges at such a time? It's obvious Joe Public would scream conspiracy.
Holloway insists the conversation was purely routine: "We don't tell the judges how to vote and, as you saw on the show, Louis hadn't - and couldn't - make up his mind. On Sunday night I was telling Louis the order the judges would vote in and that he would be last."

I can't help but wonder myself. If word on the grapevine is true then Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh are yet to make up. On Tuesday night, the judges attended a pre-arranged dinner with crew and contestants but despite hopes that they would bury the hatchet, they sat at opposite ends of the table and didn't speak.
Will it be water under the bridge come Saturday?
