X-Factor steal name of a charity

Watch http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b015j4hf/South_East_Today_06_10_2011/ starting 10:50 in.
News article http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-15211150
I never watch/vote X Factor but I'd consider doing it to get this "band" voted off.

Re: X-Factor steal name of a charity

X factor certainly aren't a charity the way they exploit vulnerable people (AKA contestants) in their chase for ratings.  Angry
The name of the game is to get the Christmas No 1 , and all their winners are one hit wonders then on to the holiday camp circuit  Embarrassed
I think they will just exploit the charity for all its worth to get the extra publicity for the show. I wouldn't be surprised if they have a special show bringing in performers from the charity (is there a smiley for being sick?)
