Default Photos/Videos: X Factor 2010 Wild Cards Entry Contestants (09th October'2010)

SPOILER ALERT: X Factor 'wild cards' go undercover... have you guessed who they are yet.


It’s the question on every X Factor fan’s mind this week – who are the wild cards going to be unveiled as this Saturday night?
And as the show’s bosses desperately try and hide their identities by making the contestants wear blankets and jackets over their heads, bookmakers have created the odds on who’s coming back.
Despite being eliminated from the show, Treyc Cohen has the odds of 22-1 to be back on the show on this weekend, along with three other hopefuls.

Peije Richardson has been predicted to come back with odds of 40-1, Diva Fever, 66-1 and surprisingly Wagner Fiuza-Carriho 100-1.
But bookies have also suspected that Annastasia Baker might have a shot after being distraught when Cheryl Cole rejected her for the second time.
While girl group Husstle are thought to have been one of Simon Cowell’s possible wild cards.
‘The betting focus today has been on the rumoured wild cards, with all four being well backed.
‘And with Gamu gone and Cher and Katie struggling, Treyc Cohen is proving a popular bet to be the top girl’, a Coral bookmakers spokesperson said.

Producers are keeping quiet about which acts are returning to the show though, even refusing to confirm whether any wild cards have been selected.
As the mystery continues though, the 'wild cards' arrived at the X Factor studios today with choreographer Brian Friedman to practise their dance moves.
But they were forced to cover their faces with jackets and try to stay as incognito as possible by wearing uni*** clothing and shoes.
Brian Friedman however, was keen to show off his new Gucci man bag in front of the cameras.
And yesterday the contestants were kept out of public view by being covered with blankets.

The four judges have each been given a ‘wild card’ entry that will allow them to bring their favourite reject back for the live finals, which will begin on Saturday.
Producers made the decision after being impressed by the high standard of contestants on this year’s show.

An X Factor source said Simon Cowell has been keen to spice up the format with ‘wild card’ finalists for several years and that he has decided to implement the stunt after being convinced it will become a ratings winner.




Don't trip: But who is hiding underneath these blankets?



Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh had each selected three hopefuls to go through last weekend.

The wild card means that they can pick one extra contestant from their groups.

Their decisions will be announced on Saturday’s show.
But one thing is certain - Gamu is not among them.

Cheryl was reportedly told not to include her, after it was discovered that immigration rules meant her family have just days to return to their home country of Zimbabwe – or face deportation.

Photos have emerged of Cheryl filming at Treyc Cohen's house in Tamworth, Staffordshire, on Sunday night - at the same time the nation learned that Gamu had been given the boot by the Girls Aloud star.

Tamworth girl Treyc was also axed - but with Zimbabwe-born Gamu ordered out of the UK by authorities after her mother breached visa conditions, it's the Midlands singer who is set to return to the live finals in a new twist.
ITV received 600 complaints after the Mail revealed how judge Cheryl Cole was told by producers not to pick the singer because of doubts over her immigration status.

X Factor wildcards: Rock the Week

The show that gets everyone talking certainly hasn’t let anyone down this week. With the wildcards set to be named on Saturday, Rock the Week felt obliged to honour X Factor's highly controversial new feature with a playlist.



Wildcard: The X Factor judges need to choose

As ever X Factor has provided a catalyst for debate. The ‘ Mystery’ surrounding who the judges will pick as wildcards is getting everyone talking.

The wildcard seems a charitable notion - however ‘ If There’s Any Justice’ a wildcard won’t win the show outright.
It’s good that certain acts will be given a ‘ Second Chance’ but if a wildcard wins, certain contestants who didn’t need another chance would feel wronged.

Some viewers want to see the return of Gamu. However, the 18 year old who resides in Scotland looks set for Zimbabwe with her mother. The UK Border Agency may ‘ Deport Them’ after Gamu’s mother’s Visa expired.
The Gamu situation has prompted protests from her fans in Tillcoultry. Men, women and children who would ‘ Never Cross a Picket Line’ normally, are standing defiant in her name.

For the judges though, it’s time to ‘ Stand by your Man’ or woman and back them to the hilt.

Whoever the judges recall must remember one thing, their first song must be great, it has to be their ‘ Redemption Song.’
The reprieved rejects need to ‘ Have A Little Faith’ in themselves because if they got voted back in they are flipping lucky - and hey, ‘ Some Guys Have All The Luck.’

Playlist in Full:
Bob Marley - Redemption Song
John Hiatt - Have A Little Faith
Lemar- If There's Any Justice
Rod Stewart - Some Guys Have All The Luck
Shinetown - Second Chance
Tammy Wynette - Stand By Your Man
Beastie Boys - Fight For Your Right to Party
Sean Paul - Deport Them
Hugh Laurie - Mystery
Billy Bragg's Never Cross a Picket Line
