THE show which has got the whole country talking comes to a spectacular climax this weekend - but who will win the X Factor?

Local lad Olly Murs faces hot favourite Joe McElderry and popular Essex girl Stacey Solomon in his bid to take the title and with it an almost certain spot atop the Christmas single chart.
