XFactor 2012: Union J, James Arthur given sex ban

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor stars Union J, James Arthur and even Christopher Maloney have been banned from hooking up with girls by show bosses.

The all male line up of finalists have been reprimanded by producers after being spotted taking girls back to the luxury of their five star hotel room throughout the week.

Needless to say, innocent Jahmene Douglas wasn't involved in any of the naughty late night shenanigans.

A show source told the Daily Mirror today: “There’s been talk of sex bans in ­previous series, but this time they are ­deadly ­serious. The contestants are ­staying at one of the most ­exclusive hotels in London.

“They can’t just treat it like a bachelor pad and bring scantily-clad girls back at all times of the day and night."

The supposed source explained: “They all went to an event on Tuesday night and at various times of Thursday ­morning they re-emerged at the hotel with ­partners. But when they tried to sneak them up to their rooms, security turned them away.

“James was with a girl he was pictured with earlier in the week and he and the Union J boys kicked up a bit of a fuss, but gave up pretty quickly."

We're shocked to learn that even Chris has been involved, with the source revealing: "Chris took his date and they went off into a private room just off the lobby. They stayed in there for quite a while, before Chris came out looking a bit sheepish.

“He’s on dodgy ground because he’s actually with someone long-term back in Liverpool.”

The source added: “When producers got wind of what had gone on, they called a meeting straight away and told them in no uncertain terms that kind of ­behaviour will not be tolerated."
