Producer decision or creative choice?
News Of The World showbiz editor has claimed he has been told that Cheryl Cole was put under pressure not to put Gamu through to the final 12 of The X Factor.
News Of The World showbiz editor Dan Wootton said on his twitter page “Gamu is NOT Cheryl’s wildcard. I’m told Cheryl was put under pressure by X Factor producers not to put her through, so don’t blame her.”
He then went on to tweet “I’m hearing conflicting things about whether Gamu’s visa and passport issues were an issue. But they may have been.”
ITV refused to comment on the Syco-Thames Television production and its procedures when questioned by ATV Today.
