X Factor Boys On A “Biscuit Ban” And Have Reportedly Been Told to Hit The Gym

“That isn’t a suggestion, that’s an order from the very top."


The remaining contestants in the X Factor are in for a tough weekend as the semi-finals are set to get underway, but before all of that, it has been reported that Andrea Faustini and Ben Haenow have been told to lay off the biscuits.

According to The Sun that pair have apparently been told to cut back on biscuit and chocolate treats and spend some more time exercising.

“That isn’t a suggestion, that’s an order from the very top,” a source told the newspaper. “They need to cut out biscuits and get to the gym.”

The competition is really heating up on the talent show with just four acts remaining. The boys will be up against Lauren Platt and Fleur East this weekend, with all four contestants hoping to bag a place in the live finals the following weekend.

Judge Louis Walsh is the only mentor who no longer has an act in the competition following Stereo Kicks’ elimination on Sunday. Meanwhile Cheryl and Mel have one act each, while Simon has two – Fleur and Ben.
