Inmates insist they would rather spend time on religious study
13th April 2010: Cheryl Cole has made Newcastle accent hot. The Geordie accent has been voted the UK’s ‘sexiest’, all because of style icon Cheryl Cole.
But, television reality show, `The X Factor’, judged by the British singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, model, and television personality, is not going down well with the inmates of a prison.
In 2008, Cole became a judge on the British reality television show `The X Factor’. Her judged programme has, in fact, made some Islamic inmates surrender their cell television sets. They just do not want to watch `The X Factor’.
The prisoners at HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire are worried over distractions to their religious study because of `The X Factor’. The inmates insist they would rather spend time on religious study, than watch `The X Factor’ judged by Cheryl Cole.
The Daily Express quoted an inmate as saying the television sets are viewed as nothing more than a distraction to religious study.
