Megan McKenna was announced as the winner of X Factor: Celebrity after receiving the highest amount of public votes. The reality star pipped Jenny Ryan and Max and Harvey to the post but some viewers weren’t happy with the final result. After Dermot O’Leary revealed who had been crowned champion, fans of the ITV show took to Twitter to share their thoughts on what they felt was a “fix”.
One said: “Clearly X Factor wanting to find a ‘fresh talent’ have forgotten the record release she’s already had, at least Max and Harvey and @jenlion fit the bill! #fix #XFactorCelebrity.”
“Shock Megan McKenna won #XFactorCelebrity biggest fix in history,” another remarked.
“Didn’t Megan McKenna already have a record contract AND her own ITV2 show following her journey?! Surely this is for people who haven’t had the chance #XFactorCelebrity,” a third wrote.
“The winner of @XFactor Megan what a surprise NOT. Knew from the start she’d win. A massive big fix all these shows, as much as I like them, have decided who they want to win and make a show around it. Good luck to @jenlion and @maxandharvey.”
However other fans praised the final result as one tweeted: “Love seeing all thee triggered fans of other acts. There was no fix. Megan got the most votes. End of. #XFactorCelebrity.”
“Consistently good throughout @Megan_McKenna_ is such a deserving winner! Congratulations #XFactorCelebrity,” another wrote.
While some fans thought Jenny Ryan was a more deserving winner.
One tweeted: “Aww @jenlion I couldn’t be prouder of you tonight for reaching the final three in #XFactorCelebrity You should have won!! You were phenomenal and sang your heart out. I sang every note with you. Keep sining keep being amazing!!!”
“Congratulations to Megan but so wanted @jenlion to win Well done Jenny on getting as far as you did… got such a great voice #XFactorCelebrity,” another remarked.
Referring to her X Factor co-stars, she said: “All the people back there are incredible.”
“Nicole [Scherzinger], you’ve changed my lie,” the Chaser added.
Meanwhile Nicole’s racy appearance as she performed on stage with The Pussycat Dolls sent viewers into meltdown.
All of The Pussycat Dolls took to the stage for the first time in ten years ahead of their 2020 reunion tour.
But viewers were distracted by Nicole’s PVC high cut bikini which she wore under a sheer bodysuit.
“Christ almighty!! Nicole is leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination there! Can practically see what she had for lunch #XFactorCelebrity #XFactor,” one remarked.
“Seriously what have I just seen Nicole Scherzinger #PussycatDolls. Wow. She looks amazing #XFactorCelebrity,” another wrote.
“Would have liked some extra material. I’m talking about Nicole’s outfit obviously. But that was kinda cool to see after ten years #XFactorCelebrity,” a third said.
