This week was coasting along quite nicely until about midday on Tuesday when a bolt from the blue provided us, and The X Factor, with its biggest story of the year.
Yes, Frankie Cocozza has dominated the news ever since and we can't really speak about this week without mentioning him. So here is a run down of his week in headlines.
Tuesday morning - Rumours of Frankie's exit emerge
Tuesday afternoon - Frankie's exit confirmed
Tuesday night - amazing video of Kelly Rowland learning the news emerges.
Wednesday morning - Drugs rumoured to behind exit.
Thursday morning - Frankie Tweets his fans for the first time since being given the boot.
Friday - Frankie admits to using cocaine during his time on The X Factor.
So, there we have it. There have, however, been many other things happening in the world of pop though including a man being found guilty for basically killing Michael Jackson. You'd think that might pull focus a bit wouldn't you? But no.
