Bootcamp is Beckoning….

Let’s get this show on the road! It will be the 10th year of the X Factor when it returns to our screens in the early autumn, and will sadly be the last time we see Louis Walsh take part in the line-up. After a decade of loyal service, he is finally stepping down as a judge to concentrate on managing musical acts as opposed to critiquing singers and groups with catty comments and witty (or so he thinks, anyway) put-downs. There have been a whole host of familiar faces who have graced the panel over the years, such as Cheryl Cole, Geri Halliwell, Kelly Rowland, Mel B, Tulisa and, of course, Mr High Waisted Trousers Himself, the Svengali that is Simon Cowell. Mr Cowell is at this very moment preparing for fatherhood on board an extremely large yacht with his faithful cronies at his side and enjoying the last little bit of freedom he has before he has to deal with dirty nappies, early morning feeds and broken sleep patterns. The pitter-patter of tiny feet has not seemed to dampen his rather smug and self-satisfied demeanour one iota; in fact it has transformed him into a bit of a media darling rather than the cruel and sometimes even sadistic man we love to hate.

There have been calls to reinstate him as Head Judge, and concerns for the future of the programme hang in the balance. We have been treated to an excellent X Factor ‘mash up’ video before the series commences, which features previous contestants who have enjoyed success, fame and fortune due to their stint on the show. Surprisingly; not many of them are actual champions, as it is more of a hindrance can you buy viagra without a doctor than a victory if you come first. Olly Murs, JLS, One Direction and Cher Lloyd are far more well-known than poor old Steve Brookstein, Leon Jackson or Matt Cardle, as previous winners have failed to set the charts alight with their lacklustre offerings and have instead crashed and burned.

The Mitre Hotel is situated a short walk away from the ITV studios, so you will be able to chill out in comfort before heading to the live shows. We will be packed to the rafters when it gets closer to the final stages, so you had better book accommodation in Manchester City Centre quick smart if you are to secure a decent room. You do not need to wander around aimlessly looking for restaurants in Manchester City Centre as our gorgeous Gastro eatery has dishes to suit even the most discerning diner. Inexpensive accommodation in Manchester City Centre is almost unheard of, so we are pretty special in that respect. Last year, TalkTalk gave 10,000 lucky customers the chance to grab tickets for the final as a little ‘thank you’, which is a sign of exceptional customer service. In our opinion; this is how it should be all the time. A lot of waiters in Manchester City Centre restaurants are rather snooty and snobbish and think that the world owes them a living. Not at The Mitre Hotel. We are charming and gracious and always go the extra mile to ensure that your every whim is catered for. To book a table just call 0161 834 4218 and we will make sure that you enjoy every minute of your meal.
