Cynic, n: a blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be

Amie_Buck.jpg

Amie Buck is no personal trainer. Except in some extended metaphorical sense.

On Saturday night she had the sympathy of the nation as she broke down in tears after messing up her X Factor audition.

But Amie Buck, who was comforted by Cheryl Cole on stage after nerves got the better of her, doesn't usually have a problem with confidence. She has been exposed as a £500-a-week lap dancer.

The 22-year-old hid her less than wholesome profession from the show's bosses, telling them she was a personal trainer.

Next they will tell me they staged the whole thing. Like the part where Amy Buck starts singing "Stand By You" by Girls Aloud and Cheryl Cole (coincindentally from Girls Aloud) stands by her to help her through it. But you know me. Doom and gloom. Conspiracies everywhere. Wheels within wheels.

So does being a peeler invalidate her from competition? Or is this all about the "drama"/personal embarrassment factor?

I should certainly hope it does not invalidate her. She is my favourite contestant at this point.

Has Simon gone soft? Girl looks good (to put it mildly), but she can't sing.
