'X Factor' boyband Times Red have been warned about partying too hard while staying at the Corinthia Hotel in London

'X Factor' wild-cards Times Red have been given a warning over their partying.

The band - made up of Scott Ritchie, Staz Nair and Luke White - irritated guests at the Corinthia Hotel in London, where all the contestants are staying throughout the competition, when Staz got drunk and naked and was banging on contestants' doors.

A source said: "Times Red were the offenders on this occasion but they aren't the only ones to let things get out of control.

"The contestants are all allowed to drink in the bar downstairs and a few times things have got pretty raucous after they have gone back to their rooms."

Rylan Clark - who is being mentored by Nicole Scherzinger - is believed to be the ringleader of the drunken antics and is often trying to party with the other contestants.

The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Rylan is a real ringleader when it comes to partying - he is always trying to get people involved - and the others don't need much encouragement. They are just letting off steam."

The Corinthia - a five-star hotel - has a three-strike policy on bad behaviour, and has said they will not be allowing the 'X Factor' stars any special privileges during their stay.
