Coronation Street triumphed at the British Soap Awards 2013 and Michelle Keegan won sexiest female.
Bianca Gascoigne - week five (Saturday)
The X Factor continues its hunt for the great singing star of tomorrow. Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh were joined by guest judges include Leona Lewis and Rita Ora at the London auditions, Mel B in Manchester and Anastacia in Glasgow.
One of the stories of the night came from an unlikely source. Hard to believe Bianca Gascoigne (yes, that Gascoigne) is only 25 – she seems to have been around forever.
Goodness knows what persuaded her to audition for X Factor. She said: “I’ve always been a singer, this is something that I’ve wanted to do; I just hope they don’t think I’m doing this as another show...” Maybe that’s precisely what they thought because her rendition of Mary J Blige’s I’m Going Down didn’t impress.
“In general it was a bit of a mediocre audition,” said Gary Barlow. Louis agreed: “It’s tough because we’ve got some amazing singers.” Tulisa added: I don’t think the vocals were strong enough for this competition.” And Rita Ora hammered in the final nail: “I think we’ve seen better singers.”
Very unfortunate for Bianca, in my opinion; worse singers have been put through to boot camp. But it's not every day you can unanimously say no to Bianca Gascoigne, is it? See how the other hopefuls did in this gallery.
