David Cameron makes Will Young 'X Factor' gaffe

By
David Cameron was heard getting his reality TV shows mixed up earlier this week.

Speaking to journalists at a Westminster lunch yesterday (December 10), the Prime Minister revealed how he voted for Will Young to win The X Factor in the past.

He claimed his daughter Nancy had urged for him to vote for Young, despite Nancy not being born until two years after the singer won Pop Idol in 2002.

"I think I did vote for Will Young once in X Factor, because my daughter made me," Cameron said.

Sources close to Cameron have since said he meant to say his wife Samantha instead of his daughter.

His mistake has been compared to Tony Blair's 'Jackie Milburn moment', where the former PM claimed to have watched the Newcastle United legend at St James' Park in the 1950s, despite only being four years old at the time and living in Australia. However, it has since emerged that Blair had been misquoted.

David Cameron also insisted he had not watched Conservative MP Nadine Dorries in I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!.

"I didn't vote and I didn't watch any of Nadine," the prime minister said.
