X Factor 2012: Union J's Josh has food poisoning!

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Josh from Union J has been suffering from food poisoning, the latest of the show's finalists to fall ill.

With [tag]Lucy Spraggan[/tag] possibly quitting the show with her illness, it's bad news to learn that another singer has fallen sick.

Union J's Josh tweeted this morning: "Haven't left my bed for the last 36 hours with food poisoning 🙁 🙁 🙁 been SO ill!! Sorry for lack of tweets 🙁 josh xx"

With just one day until the latest live show, it's not brilliant news!

His bandmate George Shelley added: "Josh has just passed out again!! Let's give him support to make him feel better #GetWellSoonJosh - George x "

And Jaymi tweeted: "Gonna bring josh breakfast in bed cause im an amazing band mate! Jaymi ... #GetWellSoonJosh x"

Josh later returned to the group's Twitter to write: "Owwwww Food poisoning from that chinese takeaway I had 🙁 🙁 🙁 still feeling awful. Worrying about tommorow night now 🙁 josh x"

Let's hope he's better for tomorrow!

Lucy meanwhile is showing little signs of improving, despite only suffering from the flu.

The 21-year-old has been out for the past week now, and has yet to appear at any of the show's rehearsals ahead of Saturday's show.

With the final practice session today, it's going to be an uphill challenge for Lucy to put together a track for tomorrow's latest live show.

[cat c="the x factor"]The X Factor 2012[/cat] continues this Saturday night on ITV1 with a Number Ones themed night.

The latest results show follows on Sunday evening, which will feature performances from Rita Ora and No Doubt, as well as one more act being given the boot.
