Rita Ora's Judges' Houses episode of 'The X Factor' was thrown into chaos by noisy aircraft and one of the contestants falling ill
Rita Ora's Judges' Houses on 'The X Factor' was thrown into chaos by noisy aircraft.
The 'Body On Me' singer's auditions were plagued by loud planes and aggressive birds of prey as she judged the six remaining girls in her category on the show on Saturday (03.10.15), leading Rita to joke they needed a no-fly zone over her Californian property.
She said: "Don't we have enough money to set up a no-fly zone around here?"
The 24-year-old star was joined by guest judge Meghan Trainor at the Hollywood mansion to whittle down the contestants ready for the Live Shows.
But excessive noise delayed filming and angry engineers were left perplexed as to how they could cut down the background sounds.
One crew member said: "There is nothing we can do about this. There are going to be planes, cars and the sound of an angle grinder in some of these shots."
And further issues were caused by one of the wannabe singers falling ill and swiftly deteriorating following her audition, sparking concerns she might not be able to fly back to the UK later that day.
However, a show source insisted they were looking after the youngster in light of the situation.
They told the Metro newspaper: "We have taken the precaution of calling a doctor."
Meanwhile, Sunday's episode (04.10.15) of the show saw her select just six acts from the girls category in the famously tough Six Chair Challenge.
Havva Rebke, Lauren Murray, Kiera Weathers, Monica Michaels, Louisa Johnson and Chloe Paige all made it through, meaning viewers will see them battle it out when Rita's Judges' Houses episode airs.
