Hannah & Max decided to throw a dinner party in celebration, where we were encouraged to dress in an X Factor theme.
Cher & Simon
Richie, (as Wagner) and Max, (as Cher) stole the show, with Hannah and Lynn manning it up as Simon Cowell.
Both Doug and I suited it up to do our best Dermot impression, and Liam looked startlingly similar to one or both of Jedward.
The show itself was a long, fattening, overdrawn affair, with a result of Matt Cardle winning, followed by Rebecca Ferguson and One Direction. In truth, the top two are actually very good singers, worthy of the likely fame that will ensue. But now it's over for another year, I think I will just about survive. Just. Merry X-MAS!
