In other X Factor news, the Queen told last year’s finalist Mary Byrne that she “never misses” the show. Her Majesty spoke to Mary after she performed in Dublin in front of the Queen.

The Sun states that the Queen said, “You are the lady off The X Factor. Your song was fabulous.”

Mary’s then quoted as saying, “I asked if she watched the show. She said, ‘It could be too late for me but I do watch it the next day’. They record it for her.”

And in our final look at X Factor news, Simon’s right hand woman Sinitta reckons that the shake up of the show is long overdue.

The Sun Buzz * quotes Sinitta as saying, “Remember Sharon Osbourne? She was a huge X Factor hit, but the show survived when she left…

“Simon will let the show evolve and give everyone freedom to do their own thing.

“If it goes wrong it won’t be his fault; if it does well he will be a genius.

“But if Simon wasn’t missed then I think heads would roll!”
