It wasn’t until the final three dances (otherwise known as “X Factor overlap o’clock”) that the show kicked into gear with strong performances from three overt ringers – a risky strategy up there with the climactic hand of every terrible movie poker sequence. Top tip: saving the best for last only works if we haven’t already been broken by Andre’s rumba and left sobbing into a cushion some hours earlier.
