'The X Factor' house has become “like a war zone” with Mat Cardle falling out with Katie Waissel and neighbours complaining about the noise
'The X Factor' house has reportedly become “like a war zone”.
The 11 remaining acts on the show live together in a huge London property, but are reportedly falling out over their differing attitudes.
Matt Cardle, a favourite to win the show, has been avoiding singer Katie Waissel, branding her a “t**t”, after reports leaked a few weeks ago claiming they had shared a bed.
When asked about the incident, he said: “It was absolute bulls**t. Katie's a fame hungry t**t. Nothing happened. I would never go near her again.
"I'm not speaking to her, I don't have anything to do with her. She's been a d**k.
“I've made my feelings absolutely clear and if she doesn't get it by now then she's more stupid than I thought."
When asked if she could do anything to make amends with him, he replied: "Leave the competition."
Neighbours of the house are also upset with the loud partying of younger stars of the show.
A neighbour told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "They've turned our peaceful neighbourhood into a war zone.
"They play loud music round the clock - some of them are in the garden until the early hours, shouting and screaming. We've complained several times, but little seems to have been done.
"Living here has become a nightmare."
The attitude of the younger contestants is having an effect on the show's older stars, such as 50-year-old Mary Byrne.
Mary reportedly told another contestant: “I can't stand it in the house any longer. The younger ones won't give me any space and are behaving like louts. It's too much and I want to leave."
'The X Factor' returns tonight (30.10.10) on ITV1.
