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

AWOLTom: @boydhilton Hope you got my tweet 2 say I yanked our tete-a-tete thought it might do more damage than good & I only use my powers for good!

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?


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


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:


mrchrissullivan: X factor mime-a-long-Bowie!

AWOLTom: @boydhilton @mrchrissullivan how dare they ruin Bowie - well except for Mary


dominictc: X Factor dramarama.


russelltovey: Cher?? Bottom two?? Crazy!!!!!!!

boydhilton: Poor Paieyjge...

AWOLTom: @mfhorne @boydhilton @mrchrissullivan Can Cher turn the Paige?

mrchrissullivan: Wagner?? Really?? This isn't even funny anymore! the Paige, Cher?

boydhilton: It was that bloody staircase!

mrchrissullivan: @russelltovey who's going then??

MrStevieWebb: Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?????

russelltovey: @boydhilton exactly!!! Get over it!!!! X

russelltovey: Happy for Katie Waissel tho... Poor cow has had a bloody awful time

SarahTruesdale: @russelltovey Her Nan's an escort. She found out last night x

russelltovey: @SarahTruesdale hot!

dominictc: Paije will go but at least it's wiped the smile off Cher's face for 5 minutes. ain't she x

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!

russelltovey: Great TV ain't it!! X

mrchrissullivan: Deadlock!

AWOLTom: @MatthewCainC4 Boydy and I had long Twitter chat 2nite issue all cleared BTW

AWOLTom: @mrchrissullivan @MatthewCainC4 @russelltovey great ratings !!!
