Home - Entertainment - STV release statement regarding website cock-up

Scottish TV company, STV released a statement tonight apologising to viewers for a mistake made on the company’s official website.

STV had prepared four stories regarding the outcome of the public vote between James Michael, Amelia Lily, 2 Shoes and Jonjo Kerr on tonight’s X Factor live show.

The stories were published by mistake, then quickly removed, but Google news had indexed the stories and were displaying them on its search pages.

STV Said: “The STV web team prepared four draft stories regarding each returning contestant in anticipation of the result from tonight’s X Factor.

“The team always prepare articles to cover all eventualities and this week was no different.

“Due to a technical problem all four drafts went live on our website at approximately 20.10 tonight.

“The articles were online for a very short time and were removed as quickly as possible.

“The technical problem is currently being thoroughly investigated.

“We would stress that this was purely a technical error and would like to apologise to viewers.”
