Everybody’s talking about… Nathan the single dad from Tottenham on The X Factor last night.

Absolutely everybody was rooting for Nathan and his adorable daughter, but he got off to an unimpressive start with a cover of Angels by Robbie Williams. He got a yes from Nicole Scherzinger who visibly had her heart set on getting him onto the show.

Sharon Osbourne gave him a yes on the condition that he prepared himself for a very, very difficult road ahead of him but from Louis and Simon it was a firm ‘No’. Simon then decided to give him a second chance to go off and prepare a new song, but it failed to win Simon and Louis over.

Fans are currently tearing chunks out of each other online arguing over whether or not this decision was fair.
