X Factor: Simon Cowell Explodes In Sun PR Mess

by | 17th, October 2011

THE Sun says that Simon Cowell has exploded. Has his belt finally given way, unable to retraining his bosoms? No. Simon has exploded in the metaphorical sense, getting upset that the X Factor is not as popular as he’d like it to be.

Colin Robertson gets a call from a fellow insider in the X Factor marketing suite:

The show boss hit the roof after the talent smash lost more than TWO MILLION viewers… An insider said: “Simon is furious. This would never have happened on his watch and he wants the team to know this and sort it out.”

This would be the same,er, failing “talent smash” that when Simon Cowell was a judge lost just under two million viewers last season:

October 3 2010: 14.51m
October 9 2010: 12.62m

Another reason why the show is not as popular: it is utterly joyless.
