The top votes for the song in Number 1 position for Grampian was 4,700, Channel 4,407 and Border *weirdly* had 21,354. (That was nearly 4,000 more than Granada even... I'm guessing the labels hit Carlisle hard and it showed!)
Compared to Central which had 43,304 and LWT had 38,604.
The highlight of this whole thing comes from 18 minutes onwards when Mel Blatt from All Saints keeps popping up in front of Westlife to pull a series of ridiculous faces. What a great pop star she was.
She's also popping up in the shot smoking a cigarette. How times change!
Everyone does seem rather drunk there... apart from squeaky clean S Club 7. Bryan McFadden is quite drunk during the reprise... I remember a few years later Westlife performed Mandy and Bryan could hardly stand up during the reprise he was so sozzled again.
I guess ITV's clincher to get everyone to attend was the free bar! Didn't work on Robbie though!
