The X Factor was launched in Sydney on Friday night with all the judges and hosts there and other Network Seven personalities to ensure maximum publicity.
Ros Reines on the Sunday Telegraph videotalks to the host and judges about whether they were going to play good cop or bad cop. Kyle Sandilands left the party before the dinner was served but we can just presume he will be playing bad cop.
Even though newly rehabbed host Matt Newton was not drinking on Friday night, rumours abound he had been out at nightclubs earlier in the week partying with the other judges and Brian McFadden.
