Talk about bad luck. Half of the 14 contestants that have made it into the live shows this year have picked up an illness.
It has been reported seven contestants have picked up an illness from the mansion which they share during the week.
The illness isn’t very serious, by this we mean life threatening, but a doctor has told them to remain ‘in bed’ for the duration of the week. Not great?
This weekend X Factor are taking it back to the 80’s, with the latest theme.
The contestants facing bed arrest are: Stereo Kicks members James Graham and Casey Johnson, Jake Quickenden, Lola Saunders, Stephanie Nala, Jay James and Ben Haenow.
A source spoke to The Sun newspaper:
“Everyone seems to be getting ill. It is a real worry.
“There are so many contestants on voice rest, but hopefully that will mean they are well enough for the show.”
The X Factor 2014 is back tomorrow (Saturday) on ITV at 8pm.
