Simon Cowell has announced that for the final episode of the X-Factor he has managed to secure world famous superstar psychic, Derek Acorah.

"He's going to be performing a medley of his greatest hits," Cowell said. "Including Beat It, My Way and Blue Suede Shoes."

Acorah, who shot to fame by channelling Michael Jackson on live television has apparently become quite friendly with Jackson, Sinatra and Elvis, so much so that he will be channelling the three of them with the London Philharmonic as backing musicians.

In addition to performing his greatest channelled hits, Acorah will also be passing on messages to the audience from their dear departed ones.

"This is an additional bonus," said Louis Walsh. "I'm really hoping that Stephen Gatley can pop through and pass on a few messages to me. I really miss that boy."

Acorah recently sold out the London O2 arena in Macclesfield with his blend of songs and chat from the dead, and many fans are looking forward to the X-Factor Live Final.

"When he did Suicide Blonde, I was blown away," said a paperboy. "It was a to the mazing."

Insiders at the show say that Acorah has something really special lined up, with Prince Charles expected to be in the audience.

"I've been told," said Ian Cider, "that Acorah will be channelling the Queen Mother singing It's a Kind of Magic from Queen. Talk about triple treat!"
