That is, if he makes it through this week.

As usual, the final three contestants will duet with some of the best in the music biz in a final bid to win the public vote.

Previous contestants have duetted with the likes of Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and even flippin' Beyonce.

However, despite producers best efforts it seems no one is keen to sign up to sing with poor ol' Christopher.

Even Jane McDonald, who, if reports are to be believed, was asked.

All we can say is things must be ruddy hectic over on Loose Women.

An insider said: "Bosses are working on the likelihood that he will be in the final — and this has caused a real headache for them."

"In the past, the acts who have reached the final have had some sort of star quality or credibility which has attracted big-name talent wanting to perform with them"

"But unfortunately that is just not the case with Christopher. He has got a good voice — but it is fair to say he is probably the uncoolest singer to have ever got this far."

"So producers have lined up Gary to sing with him instead."


"Of course Gary is a massive star with hits including Could It Be Magic and Christopher will still be thrilled to sing with his mentor."

Whether Could It Be Magic is Barlow's biggest hit to date remains to be debated.
