The X Factor boys have been receiving beauty tips from judge Gary

It’s not just the girls who’ve been grabbing the beauty treatments on this year’s show.

Apparently Gary Barlow, who in 2011 arranged for his personal nutritionist to visit the X Factor house to work with the acts, has been offering the X Factor lads his beauty tips so they too can look more handsome and get extra votes from female fans.

(As if they weren’t gorge enough!)

Sam Callahan, Nicholas McDonald, Luke Friend and, cripes, even the Rough Copy boys, have tried out pampering treatments.

We’ve had our eyebrows threaded, eyelashes tinted and been given luxury facials,’ says Sam.

But not everyone was feeling the vibe.

Scottish Nic admitted he was struggling to come to terms with his flash new lifestyle.

It’s weird,’ he says.

I asked the lady how much the facial cost and she said £85.

‘I was like, you’re just putting cream on my face and taking it off!’

Hope there’s some left over for the girls!
