Rebecca Ferguson Vs A Cucumber

Welcome to Pop Star Vs A Vegetable. This highly scientific experiment is tasked with finding out what’s better – greens or Professor Greens? This week X Factor graduate and silver medallist Rebecca Ferguson goes up against the divisive cucumber. Keep reading for the results…


Rebecca Ferguson has developed a semi-big following and came second in the 2010 series of the X Factor (otherwise known as ‘the last X Factor with our Chezza in it’).

A cucumber is used in a lot of salads but no one really eats it (or likes it – be honest).

Love life

Rebecca Ferguson famously dated One Direction hottie (but not as cute as Harry, let’s make that clear) Zayn Malik before the pair broke things off.

A cucumber has never dated anyone. It’s the geek of the vegetable world.

Rebecca – 1  Cucumber – 0


Rebecca Ferguson famously chastised Caroline Flack for maybe dating H. Styles when she herself was dating a much younger man. Read: hypocrital.

A cucumber, as far as we know, has pretty decent morals.

Rebecca Ferguson’s biggest controversy was her not winning X Factor over perennial jumper-wearing serious artiste Matt Cardle (remember his album? Neither do we).

Some cucumbers killed 10 people in Spain last year due to a new virus strain – clearly has a bit more of an edge to it.

Rebecca Ferguson probably tastes like a human being should, something we won’t know about unless we convert to cannabilism (unlikely: a Krispy Kreme’s just opened up near MP! HQ).

A cucumber has a mild taste with slight crispiness that people either love or loathe.

Rebecca’s debut album Heaven got to Number Three on the albums chart and sold nearly 140k in her opening week.

Cucumbers have sold a hell of a lot more and are available in almost every shop in the UK.

Rebecca hails from the city of Liverpool, which gave us Desperate Scousewives.

Cucumbers originate from India, who gave us Bollywood and most of Britain’s favoured cuisine.

Rebecca can sing – pretty damn well, judging by the sound of Heaven (are we still sore about her losing out to Painter Boy? Maybe).

If a cucumber could sing, we have a horrible feeling that it would sound like a cross between the more annoying parts of ‘Swagger Jagger’ and something from one of the Alvin & The Chipmunks movie soundtracks.

Rebecca – 1  Cucumber – 0

Total:  Rebecca – 4  Cucumber – 4

And the results mean that it’s a draw 4-4 between Rebecca Ferguson and the humble cucumber – however, we know which one we’d sooner have round for lunch. Check back next week to see which vegetable will be going head to head with a popstar!
