X Factor 2012 judges' houses: Louis Walsh gives acts a 10PM curfew!

Louis Walsh (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Louis Walsh has imposed a tough curfew on the acts in his category, as he begins filming judges' houses.

In a rare move away from Ireland, Louis has taken his acts out to Las Vegas with Sharon Osbourne to chose who will make the live shows.

But despite it for many being the trip of a life time, Louis has made sure that the singers don't get up to any mischief.

He warned: “Don’t let us catch you doing a Prince Harry.”

He added: “What happens in Vegas does NOT stay in Vegas when you’re on the X Factor — so don’t get caught out.”

Speaking to The Sun today, an insider explained: “The acts were excited — some of them haven’t been to the States before and they wanted to go into the bright lights of the big city.

“Louis has already said that his acts are ‘not here to party’.

“They were told they had to be back at the hotel by 10pm.

“After the photos of Prince Harry naked in his Vegas hotel room recently, bosses did not want the same happening with their acts.”

The insider added: “The acts must remember this is a family show and they can’t be seen in compromising situations.

“[They] were disappointed, but on the last night there may be more of a chance for some supervised fun — once the hard work is out the way.”
