In The Mix - 13th November


It has been reported that X Factor bosses are considering adding a fifth judge to the show after events which happened last week last week. Judge Cheryl Cole refused to vote when two of her acts, Katie and Treyc, made it into the bottom two. The rest of the judges voted and Treyc was sent home by the majority vote. Producers told host Dermot O'Leary to accept the majority vote if Cheryl refused to make a choice.

Some people have seen this as a fix and complained to media regulator Ofcom, but show bosses said they were just reminding Dermot of the rules, and even Dermot wrote on his Twitter page that there was 'No Plot'.

The proposal of adding a fifth judge is said to still be in the process of being finalised with boss, Simon Cowell putting in the finishing touches.

Apparently one idea is for the star guest who appears on the programme for that night to make their judgement. Or my idea is that one of the guest judges that were used to stand in for Danni, while she was pregnant, in the audition stages could become a full time judge?

These were, local star Pixie Lott, Katy Perry, Nicole from the PCD, Geri Halliwell and Natalie Imbruglia. However a spokeswoman for the show said the prospect of a fifth judge was "just speculation".

Harry Potter Premiere The Premiere of the 7th instalment of Harry Potter took place this week.

And apparently Emma Watson who plays Herminone Grainger, was the focus of the night as she wore with a skimpy black lace mini-dress with a feathered skirt which is a big contrast to the prim and elegant outfits she has worn at the six previous premiere's. She talked about her sense of style and how she's always loved to choose her outfits.

She said "My dad was very good when I was younger. He always encouraged me to choose things for myself. I was never just given clothes.

From around six or seven, he would let me choose what I wanted to wear, so I always had my own identity. I have held onto that very strongly and refuse to be told what I should wear. If stylists work with me, they never just give me a dress and I'll put it on. I have always had a strong sense of self and my convictions."

Devoted fans camped out in the rain, at London's Leicester Square to see the stars of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, including Harry himself, played by Daniel Radliffe and Rupert Grint who Plays Ron Weasly, who were both dressed in smart suits. The final episode of the films written by JK Rowling, has been split into two with the second film being screened next year. Deathly Hallows is being released in UK cinemas from November 19.

Sporty Spice

Ex Spice Girl, Mel C would like her and her band mates to reformed for a "demure" performance at the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony. She would like herself, Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel B and Emma Bunton to reunite to perform at the sporting event, but thinks their show would need to accommodate a global audience.

She said: "If they ask me, then I'd be there. Maybe us girls need to get together to discuss it. If we were to reform again, we'd have to reconsider the stage show. Maybe we need to be a little bit more demure."

Mel is also Mel is also looking forward to hearing the group's musical in 2012, however she insists the show won't follow the story of her and her bandmates.

She said: "The story is fictional but because Jennifer Saunders, the writer, has known us for a while, and knows the dynamics between us, the chemistry between us will be reflected in the characters. But it won't be five girls called Sporty, Posh, Baby, Ginger and Scary. It's not the story of the Spice Girls."

Spice Girls split up in 2001, two years after Geri quit the group. They announced plans for a reunion tour in 2007, but after going on the road a year later, went their separate ways again.
