X Factor's Bella Penfold reveals backstage gossip from contestants' house

Bella Penfold has spilled all on life inside the X Factor house.

One of the remaining finalists on this year's show, Bella is in the Girls category mentored by Simon Cowell.

As usual, she and rest of the contestants are sharing a massive London mansion and has revealed what it's like behind the scenes.

19-year-old Bella compared it to a "big group holiday to Ibiza with your friends" - but insisted there was still a lot of hard work going on.

Bella told the Daily Mirror that despite more than 20 of them now living together, everyone was getting on - so far.

She said: "It's not like we don’t get on, we all have the most amazing passion for performing.

"Some people are a little messier than others, some people go to sleep earlier than others, it's about finding a balance and being considerate of other people. If you do that everyone gets on alright. I don’t think one person has had an argument yet."

Bella added: "Scarlett is messy but we love her really. It does get messy in here.

"We're all up at different times, getting ready and trying to be quick. You come back and we have to tidy up. It’s about being considerate. I think everyone has been really good and there's been no friction in the house at all."

In an interview with the paper, Bella went on to say that Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams, Ayda Williamsa and Simon Cowell all stopped by the house.

"Louis comes over and plays Xbox and PlayStation with us," he said. "Robbie and Ayda come in, Simon chats with us, it's a really good experience. No one thought we would stand in this house with all these famous celebrities."

Currently a total of 14 contestants are left in the competition after last Sunday's first double elimination.

Joining Bella in Simon's girls category are Molly Scott, Scarlett Lee, and Shan Ako. Making up Robbie's groups are duo Acacia and Aaliyah, LMA Choir, Misunderstood and boy band United Vibe.

In the Boys category, mentored by Louis Tomlinson, are Anthony Russell, Brendan Murray and Dalton Andre Harris. Ayda Williams leads The Overs, now made up of Danny Tetley, Giovanni Spano and Janice Robinson.

The X Factor airs on ITV this Saturday at 8:35PM and continues with the second results show at 8PM on the Sunday.
