This is a transcript of a Twitter conversation before, during and after an episode of the X Factor UK. The people involved include; AWOLTom (Oz teacher), Boyd Hilton (presenter & critic), Russell Tovey (actor), Chris Sullivan (singer/dancer), Matthew Horne (actor), Dominic Treadwell Collins (actor), Stevie Webb (actor), Matthew Cain (TV reporter) and Sarah Truesdale (Tovey fan). Try to read it like a play…maybe try using different voices and accents…my accent is Australian of course, Russell is from Essex and so on…get your friends around and read it like a “readers theatre” piece.
MatthewCainC4: @Tom_In_Oz_ Don't say anything nasty about Boydy! He's my sister and I love him!
boydhilton: @MatthewCainC4 thanks Matt! x
boydhilton: @Tom_In_Oz_ sure... and I hope you realise no one in the world took offense at my observation. Everyone understood it.
AWOLTom: @boydhilton being a school teacher I come with a lot of reserve for people's rights that's all...always on the side of minority...OK
boydhilton: @AWOLTom honestly you've completely misunderstood. You need to see some Woody Allen films. He uses the word "Jew" a lot. It's not a bad word
AWOLTom: @boydhilton In Oz saying Jew is akin to words like Nazi & it's used as a taunt can you see my concern?
(THE X FACTOR BEGINS ON TV)
AWOLTom : @boydhilton Anyway my concern was that, you saying it, might get you into trouble. You are a public person with big responsibility
mrchrissullivan: All the Family over- massive day with a hangover!! Bring on the X !!!
boydhilton: @AWOLTom erm, that's odd because "Jew" is the word Jewish people use to describe themselves!
boydhilton: @AWOLTom & thanks for your concern but the implication I wrote something in any way offensive is offensive to me. "Jew" is NOT a taunt
AWOLTom: @boydhilton all good. I don't watch x factor except for little bit last night & I thought Wagner was German!!! Liked Mary though, a real voice!
boydhilton: @AWOLTom yes Mary's great.
AWOLTom: @boydhilton did she really cuddle you? In ur pic she looks like she could have snapped you like a twig!
boydhilton: @AWOLTom yes
(OLLY MURS SINGS NEW POP SONG ON X FACTOR)boydhilton:Thank heavens for the return of cod Reggae.
mfhorne: @boydhilton ska-pop... Skop
boydhilton: @mfhorne more like slop (sorry)
AWOLTom: @boydhilton so without being shot for saying this...who did that Olly Murs guy perform acts with to get a contract? Not even good pop!
boydhilton: The thing is, if Matt Cardle wins he'll almost certainly be singing shockingly bland cod reggae in 12 months' time too...
mfhorne: @boydhilton stop
AWOLTom: @mfhorne made trip to Wales from Oz just to visit Gavin and Stacey locations read it here: http://russell-tovey.blogspot.com/
(X FACTOR CONTESTANTS MIME “HEROES” - A DAVID BOWIE SONG)

mrchrissullivan: Wagner?? Really?? This isn't even funny anymore! the Paige, Cher?
boydhilton: It was that bloody staircase!

russelltovey: @mrchrissullivan Little Paige x
boydhilton: @russelltovey she's never walking up a staircase ever again! xx
russelltovey: @boydhilton ha ha ha!!!
AWOLTom: @MrStevieWebb @dominictc @russelltovey @boydhilton the real drama is will the ratings be higher if Cher goes...Simon playing reality card!
mrchrissullivan: Cher's pulling out her big gun- hopefully not literally- you ever know with her sort! @russelltovey
MatthewCainC4: Am genuinely stunned by the XFactor sing-off. And again, I have to ask, who on EARTH is voting for Wagner??? He isn't even funny!
