X Factor judges Tulisa and Gary Barlow have warned their acts to stay away from fellow contestant Rylan.
Both judges held meetings with their acts after the controversial pop wannabe and fellow contestant Lucy Spraggan were evicted from the London hotel where the remaining X Factor contestants are currently living.
The judges' harsh words came after Rylan Clark, 23, was photographed with fellow contestant Lucy Spraggan behaving drunk and disorderly following a night out at London's G.A.Y club. The wannabe singers were photographerd staggering back to their hotel last week following their drunken night out.
The twosome were seen trying to take the wipers from a parked bus, falling over in the street and allegedly attacking staff when they returned to the Corinthia hotel where they were living with the remaining X Factor contestants.
A source told the Daily Mirror, "Tulisa was disappointed with Lucy - she had her down as a serious musician and a real competitor for this years title but now she thinks she's just here for a laugh.They really embarrassed themselves. Photos of them rolling around drunk in the street appeared and it really brings the show into disrepute."
Tulisa is worried that Lucy's association with Rylan will affect her votes and accused Lucy of not taking her opportunity seriously.
Gary Barlow, who has made no secret of that fact that he isn't a fan of Rylan and openly labelled the aspiring singer "talentless", also warned his contestants to steer clear of the Essex born contestant.
According to reports, Gary, 41, told his remaining acts Chris Maloney and Kye Sones that if they want to have any chance of winning the competition they should stay away from Rylan. It's reported that Gary told his acts: "He shouldn't be here, you'll ruin your chances if you're not careful."
A regretful Lucy Spraggan later tweeted an apology for her behaviour: "Me and @RylanClark are partaking in a small vacation from the hotel for a few days. Our most sincere apologies for our #beerfear behaviour"
