Dolphin shows don’t have the X Factor for Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell, executive producer and judge on TV talent show The X Factor, has promised to stop the future broadcast of scenes involving X Factor contestants swimming with dolphins following an online public petition.

A preview for next weekend’s Xtra Factor episodes, filmed at judges’ houses, shows the final six boys attending a dolphin show, as well as swimming with them. Cowell has reacted to the public outcry by tweeting: “I had no idea Xtra Factor producers filmed with dolphins. This will NOT be showed on Saturday.”
