Peter Dickson pulls out of tonight’s X Factor?

Voiceover Man Peter Dickson has pulled out of tonight’s X Factor following a row with the show’s bosses, according to the headworld.com.

The website says: “Peter has pulled out of introducing tonight’s show after a series of rows with X Factor bosses! Goodness know what they’ve been rowing about – but it must be bad if it’s caused him to walk out!”

In his blog, posted earlier today, Peter said: “Tonight is also a very special night for me. For the past 8 years since series one, I have piloted the X Factor airwaves in my mark one VO booth – solo. I’ve never had a co-pilot. But tonight, as it’s “Movie Night”, I had the idea of inviting a good friend of mine in to help out with the vocals on the opening pre-title sequence.

“So, although I will still be occupying the Captain’s seat in my booth overlooking that big stage tonight, sitting alongside me in the right hand seat will be Mr Red Pepper, lending his rich Movie Trailer style voice to a section of the script.”

I guess we’ll find out what’s going on in an hour’s time..
