The X Factor round-up:

Daily Mirror (front page): “OLLY LOVES ME”

Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon are an item. So says the Mirror:

Their outrageous flirting has become the talk of the show – and everyone agrees they make a lovely couple. Especially after it was revealed that X Factor rivals Stacey Solomon, 19, and Olly Murs, 25, have just shared their first kiss.

They kissed each other.

Now the singers – both strongly tipped as possible winners – are said to be a “hot item” as they prepare to do battle against each other tonight.

Said to be hot item by whom?

They’ve had a few cuddles – and at least one kiss out of sight of the other contestants…

Says a source who saw them kiss and cuddle out of, er, sight of everyone else.

In a video showing them cooking omelettes together on Friday, the couple hug several times and gaze tenderly into each other’s eyes. A chef at the house turns to the camera and says: “There is a lot of love between Olly and Stacey.”

Stacey blushes and giggles as she jokily replies: “He loves me… and I hate him. Ha, ha.”

Stacey hates Olly! Read all about it. And Olly doesn’t only have omelettes for Stacey:

Stv: “Olly Murs is quite a ladies man”

He tells Now magazine:

The singer was also caught on camera checking out Dannii Minogue’s bum when she visited the X Factor houses… “Everyone caught me looking at her arse – I mean, bum. I had a cheeky peek, but who wouldn’t? She’s Dannii Minogue.”

What would Stacey say?

And what about Jedward, the husband and wife act disguised as twin boys:

Take That’s Gary Barlow said: “I don’t want the twins to win. I want it to go to someone more deserving. It’s not really fair otherwise. I don’t really enjoy them.”

What says the saviour of British pop, Lily Allen?

Lily Allen added: “I can’t say I’m a fan of Jedward. Quite the opposite really.”

It’s Lily Allen, a woman without whom no showbiz story is complete:

Daily Mirror: “X Factor and Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole versus Lily Allen – again”

Fight! Or a Cheryl might say “Fight. Fight Fight!”

Organisers made sure their paths didn’t cross backstage at the Children in Need gig by making sure their dressing rooms were far apart. But we saw Lily on feisty form as she got a ringside view of Chezza’s song via a monitor – belting out a comic “Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for this love”.

She tried to score more points by mimicking her Geordie rival’s soldier dance footwork and cracked herself up by punching the air.

She threw the first punch:

The two famously fell out when Lily first boxed Cheryl into a corner by calling her a “stupid bitch” on her blog – and Chezza, right, hit back by branding Lil a “chick with a dick”.

No, Cheryl that’s Lady Gaga, allegedly. What other news of national treasure Cheryl?

The Sun: “Cheryl a peril for Ashley”

CHERYL Cole gives hubby Ashley a ticking off – because she wanted to party and he wanted to go to bed. The X Factor judge, 26, fancied celebrating after giving a spectacular performance at Thursday’s Children In Need concert. But Chelsea footballer Ashley said he was tired.

As the Daily Star says on its front page: “Axe Factor for Cheryl & Ashley.”

And there is more trouble in store as the TV schedules conspire against the Chezza And Ash:

Daily Mirror: “Fury as final up against BBC’s sports awards”

BBC bosses are furious after ITV rescheduled the X Factor final to clash with its Sports Personality of the Year awards.

What’s Ashley Cole going to do? It’s make or break time…

Now a question from the Guardian’s Esther Addley:

The Guardian (front page): The Jedward Factor – is Simon Cowell killing good pop?

Six seasons after it premiered on British TV, the enormous popularity of The X Factor is hardly news…

Go on:

One could argue, indeed, that The X Factor expands rather than replaces the market for music; millions of pre-teens, for instance, will have been introduced to a song made famous by Julie London in 1955, Cry Me a River, thanks to Michael Bublé’s performance on the programme three weeks ago. Savage calls the programme’s audience “people who aren’t passionate about music. And there’s always been a huge market for people who weren’t passionate about music.”

See the papers every day.

But what is the X Factor’s secret? The Daily Telegraph’s Michael Deacon explains:

Deacon says it’s Twitter, Jedward, the recession, the show and the production values. There might well be more reasons. And when he has his next column to write he might well explore them.

Stay tuned…
