With the X-Factor in the UK well underway and Simons show getting more than 7million viewers last Saturday it seems like employing a whole new line of judges has paid off for Cowell. He has always known what is best and he’s got it right again. Simon recently slashed Cheryl from the US X-Factor show and has admitted he was in the wrong; however Nicole from the Pussycat Dolls has filled Cheryl’s boots tremendously well. Cheryl is now reportedly going to be joining back with the UK version later on this year however these may just be rumours.

Simon, who is a big fan of his sports cars and prestige vehicles, does not hide that he has a massive love for this Rolls Royce Phantom, it is Simon’s favourite car along with a lot of celebrities. He was spotted leaving the set of the X-Factor US and jumping straight into his Rolls Royce with a bottle of bubbly, not a bad end to the day by any means.

With Christmas slowly creeping up and the charts about to go crazy, it’s time for the crazy acts rather than the normal artists to start preparing for the biggest part of the music year, the Christmas number one. This year doesn’t seem like it’s going to be any different with Big Brother winner Paddy Doherty going to make his famous bid for the number one spot, fresh from his Big Brother win he has became a public favourite and has proved a lot of people wrong in the industry.

It’s hard with Simon Cowell’s X factor winner bound for the top spot however it has been proven it can be done when Race against the Machine kept him off the top spot and Simon just couldn’t believe his artist didn’t take the top spot.

It is also reported that famous actor Brad Pitt wants to make a movie of the Big Brother Paddy’s life if this is true then it is certainly something we have never heard before.



Ferrari Enzo Lost in Saltwater Lake

A very rare Ferrari supercar crashed into a lake in Canada after the driver behind the wheel lost control of the £1million sports car, the Ferrari Enzo which is one of the high end Ferrari models with only so many being built in the world, was actually one of 400 of the classy supercars. The sports car hit a stone on the track as it came speeding around the bend at very high speeds. Spectators at the Targa Newfoundland Rally in Canada described the luxury sports car to spin a full 180 degrees before heading backwards into the lake. The driver who crashed the car was Zahir Rana with his friend Roland Linder co- driving and navigator, the two men managed to escape out of the Ferrari unharmed.

Despite the crash the Ferrari hasn’t sustained much damage; all what was done to the car was a smashed bumper, a wing, and a lot of cosmetic bodywork. The main issue to be resolved following is in fact the electronics in the Ferrari which had became wet and damaged after the vehicle ended up in the lake. When the Ferrari was lifted in the crane the car dealer had two very expensive mechanics work on the car for 14 hours straight and they stripped the car back to try and minimise the damaged which the water caused.

The Enzo is planning a shock return to racing next year when the car is fully repaired.
