The contestants are being punished

The X Factor‘s Rylan Clark and Lucy Spraggan have been told to leave the finalists’ swanky London base after their wild night out on Sunday.

Rylan, 23, was snapped flashing his bum and play fighting with Lucy, 21, outside the 5-star Corinthia Hotel following a raucous outing to nightclub G-A-Y to celebrate making it through to next week’s show. 

‘Me and @lspraggan are partaking in a small vacation from the hotel for a few days. Our most sincere apologies for our #beerfear behaviour x,’ Tweets Rylan, 23.

X Factor chiefs have decided to make an example of the pair and are thought to have arranged for them to stay in budget rooms near the programme’s studio in Wembley until at least the end of the week.

‘The show’s bosses are furious,’ an insider tells The Sun.

‘[They’ve] decided to punish them both.’
