Singing until 5am and guests in tears – it’s all kicking off at X Factor boot camp…


Now infiltrated Selsdon Park hotel in Croydon last week for X Factor boot camp.

We were promised it’d be the most explosive, sex-crazed, booze-fuelled one ever – and it was shaping up that way on the first two days.

The hotel received complaints from guests who claimed they’d not been pre-warned.

‘The first night’s party lasted until 2am,’ says our spy.

‘The contestants were given beer and ended up running through the hallways while banging on random room doors.

‘A couple celebrating their anniversary were in tears.’

Staff sources alleged they’d been told not to intervene as it was all being filmed for the show.

But by last Tuesday, the sexy’ boot camp had turned into a damp squib anyway.

Instead of stripping and rabble-rousing, the hopefuls were drinking water and having early nights!

‘Tuesday onwards, the complaints were only about the excessive singing, which lasted ’til 5am all over the hotel, including the loos,’ adds our spy.

‘On Thursday, the booze flowed again as hopefuls partied into the early hours to celebrate the last auditions.’

The hotel declined to comment.
