Rylan Clark, Jade Ellis and Kye Sones are all sick ahead of tonight's latest X Factor show.
X Factor star Jade Ellis has been put on voice rest ahead of tonight's latest live show, while Kye Sones is suffering a sore throat!
Rylan Clark is also ill, but it may well be that it could actually improve his performance.
Jade tweeted her fans earlier this week: “Hey guys it’s killing me not to talk I have been on voice rest for the last 48 hrs!!! It’s hard cause I’m Such a chatterbox!!!!! #challenge”
But it’s not only Jade, Kye has also been struggling in rehearsals.
He tweeted his followers: “Razor blade throat!! Seeing the doc now :-(”
He later added: “Lemsip max is my saviour!!!”
A show insider told the Daily Star today: “It’s become the sick factor backstage. They are dropping like flies.
“We are having to keep a very close eye on all of them before this virus spreads.
“They will see a doctor before we go live, everyone’s keeping their fingers crossed that they can perform tonight.”
