ALISON BOSHOFF: How DID a scary has-been (with a very spicy past) become the best thing on X Factor?

With her withering put-downs, foul language — she even barked at fellow judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, ‘I ****ing hate sitting next to this one’ — and aggressive ‘I’d-have-you-in-a-fight’ stare, she certainly doesn’t scream prime-time family-TV star.
