X Factor tour’s boozy behind the scenes secrets revealed

The X Factor tour acts have reportedly been boozing it up behind the scenes.


A group of contestants from last year’s series are currently on the road with the annual live arena show.

The acts on The X Factor tour are Simon Cowell’s Groups Rak-Su and The CutKelvins and Sharon Osbourne’s top Girl Grace Davies.

Plus Louis Walsh’s top Boy Lloyd Macey and Nicole Scherzinger’s Overs Kevin Davy White and Matt Linnen.

They’re joined by a seventh wild card act from the other finalists, Sean and Conor, who won a public vote.

The tour kicked off in Belfast and Dublin last month and is now half-way through.

According to sources behind the scenes, the acts are enjoying every minute – perhaps a bit too much.


“Once they’re off the stage, everyone goes clubbing,” a source told The Sun newspaper. It’s a bit X Factor gone wild because they’re partying so hard.

“One night security only got 15 minutes of sleep because they all stayed out so late.”

The insider went on to reveal how the nights out had left The Cutkelvins in need of financial help.

They explained: “None of the Cutkelvins have access to money for day-to-day things because they Jay and Kyle lost their cards on a night out in Dublin so they were relying on Shereen.

“Then they lost her card as well so everyone else is now having to pitch in to help them out.”

However there will be no partying tonight, with the latest concert in Glasgow cancelled due to the weather.

A statement said: “Due to severe adverse weather conditions, tonight’s X Factor live show at the SSE Hydro is cancelled.


“Every effort was made for the show to go ahead but the safety of our visitors is our number one priority. Due to the weather and with advice from relevant authorities the show has been forced to cancel.”

They added: “Ticket holders are advised to contact their point of purchase for a refund.

“On behalf of the promoter, artists and the venue please accept our apologies for any disappointment and inconvenience caused.”


The group posted to social media revealing they had been stuck for hours in traffic.

Shereen from The Cutkelvin said: “Been on the tour bus for 9 and half hours ?? stopping off soon – this weather ain’t joking around ?”
