X Factor fans suspicious of jukebox's random 'Fright Night' choice

Updated: 

X Factor has come under fire from fans who claim it was a bit fishy that the jukebox randomly selected Fright Night for Halloween week.

Each week host Dermot O'Leary spins a jukebox which randomly selects the topic for the contestants to pick songs from for the following week.

But there were a few raised eyebrows among fans on Twitter when the randomiser wheel selected Fright Night for Saturday's theme.

Many were just plain sceptical:

One or two even said BEFORE the event that the wheel would land on Fright Night.

Plenty of viewers came right out and called it a fix.

However, when it happened Dermot did assure fans that it was "bona fide".

And X Factor has insisted that the selection was totally random.

A spokesman said: "Themes on the jukebox are genuinely chosen by random choice.

"It's pure coincidence."
