X Factor 2014: Jack Walton clashes with mentor Mel B behind the scenes

Jack Walton

There's seemingly a war going on between Mel B and her X Factor act Jack Walton.

The singer is the Boys wild card, having been chosen to return to the competition by Simon Cowell.

But it seems that Jack and mentor Mel aren't seeing eye to eye.

At the weekend, Jack came under attack for his performance of Eye of the Tiger and the tension between the pair was plain for all to see.

"We’ve had a bit of a backwards and forwards this week, and it showed on stage," Mel told Jack after the judges criticised his performance. “I think moving forward, if you make it through to next week, we need to make these discussions happen a lot earlier.

“You know what I’m talking about.

Over on the Xtra Factor, and Jack revealed how he and Mel had clashed over the routine of the track.

Mel had wanted Jack to rip off his top but he was against the idea.

“I just felt that cheapened the act a little bit," he told host Sarah-Jane Crawford. “I didn’t want to rip my top open.

"It’s not what I would do at a gig, so I didn’t see why I should do it.”

The X Factor 2014 continues next Saturday and Sunday on ITV with the annual Halloween special.
