Reality News: A Berkshire woman spent a full five minutes today wondering what her life would be like if she cared about The X Factor.

Judith Napp from Reading says she doesn’t have the vaguest passing interest in the show, and when friends talk about it she is prone to glaze over.

“It would be such a drastic lifestyle change if I cared about The X Factor,” says Napp. “Conversations at work would be so much easier, I’d save money by staying in and watching it instead of going out and enjoying myself. Shame I don’t give a shit.”

But Napp also recognises that giving a shit about the X Factor may have its downsides.

“I could quite easily spend a fortune on phone voting. Then I’d probably get really fanatical about The X Factor – shouting at the telly, or posting excrement through Nick Grimshaw’s letterbox. That kind of thing.”

“In that sense, it’s probably better that I don’t care about The X Factor and just stick to going to the pub.”
