Oh my goodness! What a ridiculous load of nonsense. A competitor in a tacky TV programme needs minute by minute updates on his tour of swindon. Good grief. Thank god I don't shop at Chavsda.

No, you're right. It's not like anyone who shops at Chavsda has a job! They may as well get some fresh air exercise for once. Shame they haven't got anything better to do really...

What a snob! I am a graduate with my own company and I shop in Asda sometimes.
This young lad has a fabulous voice but, more than that, is already using his fame to highlight a real problem in our society.
Its such a shame that people think they are better than others but by being so rude show that they haven't even been clever enough to learn good manners!
Its great to see a local lad doing so well- GO JAHMENE!

What sad small-minded people we live amongst. Jahmene is a local lad who has exceptional talent and who is using that talent for charitable endeavour. I am post grad-educated, I shop at Asda and I enjoy watching the X Factor even more so this year with the spine tingling awe-inspiring performances put on my Jahmene. Good luck to him and his family. Well done to him for putting Swindon on the map and for highlighting the social monster that is the domestic abuser. Well done Asda for what they have raised for Womens Aid.

If you don't have anything nice to say may I suggest you say noting at all (or were you "haters" not raised correctly?)

Thank you Jahmene for bringing so much pleasure to so many and Good luck for Saturday. You have my vote!

Jahmene is a credit to our town-whatever happens this weekend--he will record and have a good career.
Yes he has highlighted the plight of the Womans age refuge-and raised a good and i am sure a welcome boost for them
sadly--very little is heard of the men who suffer domestic violence.
He has not forgotten his roots here as his visit today has shown. We all hope his future goes well and he reaches the heights he fully deserves.

Well done to Jahmene - I don’t watch X-factor but from what I have heard, the kid has talent.

Enjoy it whilst it lasts, unfortunately, show biz is fickle and you have to gain from it what you can.

Personally I hope he doesn't win, not because I don't like him or anything... I think he has a great voice, but it seems to me that acts that win the show tend to be held back from releasing their material for ages where as the other finalists have albums in the shops almost straight away and do well for themselves. E.g. JLS, 1 Direction...Huge!
Who won last year a girls group wasn't it, what have they done? or the guy who won a couple of years ago Matt Cardel, thought he would be big but hasn't come to much.
So don't take it the wrong way Jahmene, I hope you come second, get the xfactor tour out the way then bang an album out while they wastes time thinking up an image and songs for the winner.

I think on the basis that this guy is being paid £15,000 of council tax payers money despite this being his "home town" we all have a right to voice the opinion we have paid to voice.
Personally I have no time for these instant fame and fortune programmes when so many just as talented hard working singers never make it, but we live in this "now" society where no one it seems wants to actually work hard for a living they just want it on a plate and they want it now. Maybe one of the reasons the country and others are in this mess is because everyone wants it now and sod the future. Sad but true.
Each to their own but dont slag off those who choose not to agree with your point of view after all there is no right or wrong only opinion!

if he was paid £15k to appear that is an insult to all the people of swindon.thought we had a choice but the council loves to waste our money.maybe the adver will be full of real news when karaoke factor has finished"""

That was the price paid for the "package" , the singer, his "handler", the bodyguards, the helicoptor, how much do you think these sort of things cost then? the likes of Nicole wouldnt get out of bed for less than 5 grand....

As for Localboy, just because your opinion differs from mine there is no reason to be rude and ignorant. And I dont moan, I just pass comment on how I see things and I have a very diffetent view on what passes for entertainment in my life than you do clearly. It doesnt make either of us right or wrong just different, so please, if you want others to respect your opinion, whatever it might be then you have to do the same to them. And no I have never requested an FOI in my life, I have far more interesting things to do, but as you clearly didnt believe me I was suggesting a way you could get proof of how your tax money is being spent on your behalf. I am sure a lot of people thoroughly enjoyed it all and good luck to them but for me the whole "celebtity" thing just leaves me cold.

What some miserable so & so's on here.


This Town hasn't got much going for it. It's a town stuck in a time warp. So although X-Factor isn't everyone's cup of tea (I don't watch it), it's nice to have a bit of spirit that brought thousands of people together yesterday, in freezing weather. Young and old alike.

As for oldtownmum - how stuck up you have come across. Where people shop has nothing to do with them being Chavs. Alot of people will shop there as it's the closest supermarket to them. Frosty knickers!!!

As for houseonthehill - where do you get your figures from if you haven't been digging into information from the Council?? Do you work for them? Wasn't the helicopter laid on by simon Cowell??

Oh my goodness! What a ridiculous load of nonsense. A competitor in a tacky TV programme needs minute by minute updates on his tour of swindon. Good grief. Thank god I don't shop at Chavsda.
Sorry we can't all afford Waitrose! Snob!!
And have some manners! Don't paint everone with the same brush. Not everybody that shops in ASDA is a chav. Some really narrow minded stuck up people!! And that is putting it politely... but I assume that using foul language would be 'chav'...
And show some support to the young lad who actually has a dream instead of judging others... You literally disgust me. I'm embarrassed to be in your internet presence.

The amount of prime time advertising that ASDA has received via Mr Douglas' appearances on The X Factor has already been worth around £100k to them and the TV exposure that Swindon will receive this weekend will dwarf any small amount that may have been paid for last night's appearance.

Mr Douglas seems like a decent kind of person and, while not to my taste, does have a strong voice and obvious talent. I really fail to see how anyone can be overly negative about him, and the fact he's from Swindon is a good thing for the town's profile.

It's also excellent that he has helped point the spotlight on the horrific criminality of domestic abuse. The more the profile of this terrible crime is raised, the more out magistrates and judiciary will have to start handing down appropriate sentences and stop letting abusers get away with their crimes. People are sick to death of their leniency encouraging these types of crimes.

Well done to Jahmene - I don’t watch X-factor but from what I have heard, the kid has talent.

Enjoy it whilst it lasts, unfortunately, show biz is fickle and you have to gain from it what you can.
I'm in my 30s. Too old to be watching naff tv and waiting in freezing weather to jump on a bandwagon! And how anyone can defend the shoppers at the awful Chavsda is beyond me! I've ventured in a few times and have never seen so many shuffling track suits! Each to their own though eh?
Are you single??...I know someone I really dislike I could set you up with!!
Nope, I'm happily married to a hard working man who earns enough for us as a family to not have to live the 'chav' lifestyle! The vitriolic comments on here are laughable.
That posts and your username sums you up so well...

'oldtownmum' - is that all that you are? Oh how much you must have worked to reach that lofty goal.

'happily married to a hard working man' - again showing that you yourself have no worth.

Continual use of the expression 'chavsda' because you think that it's such a clever play on words - showing a total lack of intelligence (or for that matter, class). Think yourself lucky he didn't work in Tesco - oh how would you have incorporated 'chav' in that?

Think about this - you have no intelligence, you have no class, you are in your 30's (therefore your looks are now fading). Don't you think that your 'hard working' husband might be looking for a younger, more intelligent model? Indeed, doesn't he deserve better than you?

See you in Asda after the divorce (if not Poundstretchers!)
