Gok Wan: ‘X Factor twins are my guilty pleasure’

Gok Wan has confessed X Factor twins John And Edward are his Saturday night “guilty pleasure”.

The How to Look Good Naked presenter said: “I like them because I think they’ve got b***s to go out there every single week and have some fun.

“For two 18-year-olds from Ireland with that amount of self confidence, and I’m all about confidence, I think it’s brilliant.”

He continued: “They’ve got the bows and bangles, the pyrotechnics, everything about them is creating brilliant stage shows and, you know what, it’s a Saturday night, it’s what you want, you don’t want to see somebody crying over a piano all night.”

However, despite taking the highest percentage of the viewers’ vote and bookies slashing their odds of winning the show, Gok still does not believe they will go all the way.

He said: “I don’t think they’re going to win for a second because I think there’s better talent in the show, but they know that and they believe in themselves.”
