Security on 'X Factor' has been stepped up after Islamist preacher Omar Bakri called the show 'anti-Muslim'.

Simon Cowell always did look dodgy, now the truth is out!

I think that the X Factor is anti-Christian because the programme has never had a Bible reader or hymn singing.

Couldn't happen to a nicer group of people (providing they evacuate Cheryl Cole in good time)

is the man who says:

"even watching the X Factor is a sign of godlessness, and will result in losing your soul, as well as your mind and will to live."

I'm warming to him by the minute.

My Word!

Tinned tomatoes AND the X Factor.

The will to live is really getting weak!

Quoted from Wikipedia,

"After the September 11, 2001 attacks Bakri praised the attackers as "magnificent",[8] and changed his leanings towards the theology and philosophy of Al Qaeda. Bakri then stated that he had become a Salafi Muslim.[7] Media outlets and British Muslims criticised him for his open support for various international jihadist organisations."

Seems like a nice bloke.

Isn't this the bloke who has a pole dancing daughter? Quite an embarrassment I should think.
