X Factor "glamorises bullying"

TV talent shows like the X-Factor stand accused of glamorising bullying.

The claim's been made by the president of the Girls' School Association.

Dr Helen Wright says the programmes are not only banal and mind-numbing - they're also amoral.

An X Factor spokeswoman said: "The X Factor continues to be one of the most popular entertainment shows in the UK.

"The production is based on a team ethos - everyone works together in a positive environment and we have a zero tolerance policy towards bullying."
