Only 1.5% of the vote separated them last week and it could be even closer this time. An estimated 5m fans are expected to vote and, as Cowell said on Thursday: "It all depends on how they perform on the night." Despite appearances, Cowell and Walsh actually quite like each other and will be doing X Factor II next year. ——————————————————————————————————————— Jamie Theakston interview 135 Soaps 118 GET A BRAND NEW SEAT IBIZA FOR PENNIES?

It was a huge surprise to the judges when Aled Jones, rather than Clary, was voted off last week. But will Julian's army of armchair fans have the final say? The bookies' favourite to triumph is EastEnder Jill Halfpenny and the other contestant is Denise Lewis. Both can definitely dance better than Julian. ——————————————————————————————————————— Your favourite Channel 4 shows 400 GET A BRAND NEW SEAT IBIZA FOR PENNIES?
