This year's 'X Factor' finalists have set 10 strict rules they must follow while competing on the show or they will be kicked off

The 'X Factor' finalists have been told they must stick to a strict set of rules otherwise they will be kicked off the show.

Bosses have drawn up a list of 10 rules which the pop hopefuls must follow in a bid to calm down their wild behavior - which has included them trashing a hotel during the boot camp stage and damaging Simon Cowell's Spanish villa during their time at the judge's house.

A show source told the News of the World newspaper: "This is the most out of control bunch of finalists we've ever had. It's simple, if someone misbehaves they will be out. Everything they do is under the microscope. It's being made clear to them exactly what the expectations are and exactly how they should behave. There will be no excuses if they break the rules."

Rules the finalists must follow include not getting drunk, no sexual relationships between finalists, zero tolerance on damaging property and drug use and no relationships with 'X Factor' fans.

The rules will be enforced by appointed minders who will monitor the behavior of all contestants when they move into the 'X Factor' house.

In July, police were called to a Premiere Inn in Wembley, north London, after 20 finalists got drunk and went on a rampage through the hotel.

In August, when several hopefuls stayed at Simon's house they damaged a £10,000 Persian carpet following a drinking session leaving the music mogul fuming.
