It seems that some of the X Factor 2011 hopefuls decided to blow off some steam together at judges' houses, with claims that members of groups The Risk and the Lovettes hooked up as they waited to find if they'd make through to the live shows.
Andy Merry of boy group The Risk apparently bedded The Lovettes lead singer Francesca 'Chess' Leigh, as they stayed in the holiday island of Mykonos in Greece.
A source "close to the pair" told the Daily Star Sunday: “Chess was saying there was no way she could go without sex for weeks on end.
“She had her eye on a few of the fellas. Then one night she got close to Andy Merry. Chess is a gorgeous looking girl and he couldn’t resist her."
They continued: “They were together nearly every night during her time at Tulisa Contostavlos’ house in Greece and couldn’t keep their hands off each other.
“The other girls in the band were pretty fed-up that she was more bothered about cavorting than fine-tuning their act.
“Andy’s bandmates were more understanding as she’s such a babe.”
The pair had orgiinally auditioned as soloists before being put into groups at bootcamp. We'll find out tonight if either of them are through to the live shows, which start next Saturday.
Groups mentor Tulisa meanwhile was left unimpressed by the reports.
“At the end of the day, there’s a lot of pressure and this is not the time for mucking about or partying. The people wanting to fool around just aren’t taking it seriously," she moaned. "I’m all for love and romance. But if they’re just mucking about, just for fun."
