Marcus Collins fled 'The X Factor' after his best pal Craig Colton was voted off the show on Sunday night (20.11.11).
The 23-year-old hopeful - who is now the only male left in the competition - was said to be "in tears" when he heard of Craig's exit and immediately escaped to a health spa in Milton Keynes to avoid sharing a house with remaining acts Amelia Lily, Misha Bryan, Janet Devlin and girl band Little Mix.
However, Marcus' disappearing act didn't go down well with bosses of the ITV1 show or mentor Gary Barlow.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "The poor lad had just had enough of being lumbered with a load of girls and needed to escape. But his antics have not gone down well. He was given a rocket for causing a security scare."
Marcus isn't the only 'X Factor' hopeful to cause a stir this week, as Irish teen Janet is said to be furious that mentor Kelly Rowland has deserted her acts to promote her new single, and feels increasingly sidelined in favour of fellow girls Amelia Lily and Misha Bryan.
A source said: "Janet can't believe Kelly is in Paris. If she's not doing interviews talking about herself and promoting her album she's off recording.
"Janet feels like she has had less than zero help from her. Kelly doesn't think she's cool or sexy the way the other girls are and she is trying to change Janet and make her loosen up. But Janet won't and she's being unbelievably tough. Kelly and Janet are on the opposite ends of the spectrum.
"Janet's operating on her own and feels totally alone in this contest."
