Stacey is more and more brave and being liked by fans must be encouraging Jamies sincere and energetic voice and dance get the crowd going My daughter emailed me wondering if she could fly in and join the screaming fans! I also enjoy watching The X Factor I am impressed by the twins, John and Edward, for their determination and spirit in the face of a lot of criticism THE Chinese ambassador has revealed herself to be a huge X Factor fan, despite reports that younger admirers of the shows contestants had triggered a diplo- matic incident. Last week Chinese officials were said to be unhappy over the noise, litter and graffiti left by dozens of teenagers outside the X Factor house. The 6m house in Golders Green, where the ITV shows contestants are living, is next door to property owned by the Chinese embassy. But now it has emerged that Chinas ambassador Madam Fu Ying enjoys watching The X Factor when there is time. She says even her own daughter had asked if she could fly to Britain to join fans gathered at the house. Madam Fu has sent a public letter to The Sun, talking about the show and giving her opinion on each contestant. She writes: It was fun finding myself caught up in X Factor fever and reading about the diplomatic row involving my embassy. My daughter emailed me wondering if she could fly in and join the scream- ing fans! It would be unfair to mention who my favourites are, but I think all the acts have some great quali- ties. She praised twins John and Edward for their determination and spirit. Madam Fu goes on to say how she believes Stacey has been more and more brave while Jamies sincere and energetic voice gets the crowd going. She thinks Danyl and Olly are great showmen and Lloyd and Joe have potential. The ambas- sador also says Welsh singer Lucie has a lovely voice, like the country she is from. On Simon Cowell and his fellow judges, she adds: It is going to be a very close competition. It will be difficult for the judges, who are of impressively high quality.
