It is, of course, pretty cheap of the X Factor producers to try and exploit the Bridgend suicide cluster as a way of adding drama to their sideshow. Having said that, the reaction of Alexandra Davies, the 'girl from suicide town' is a bit surprising, too:
Leaving aside the question of how much you thought you'd be on if you didn't think it was going to be on at all, what did she think she was doing at the X factor auditioning if she didn't think she'd be on the television? What did she think the cameras were doing pointing at her? Did she just think that they weren't cameras - perhaps she figured that Simon Cowell has invented a kind of talent-sniffing robot with a giant eye?
Let's face it, if you know the X Factor well enough to want to go on it, you must have a pretty good idea that the early rounds are nothing to do with talent, and everything to do with how much you can cry on camera.
