Exclusive X Factor News: Secret Gig

With just three weeks left in the X Factor, the contestants must be feeling the pressure but one things for certain – they’re all getting more and more like real celebrities.

At a gig organised in the Talk Talk store in London’s Soho, not only did the contestants all put in flawless performances but we can exclusively reveal there were offstage antics that will ensure they make headlines for their behaviour as well as their voices. For example, Very hears Little Mix contestant Perrie Edwards (extreme right in the photo below) now has a celebrity boyfriend in the form of One Direction singer Zayn Malik. Zayn clearly has a thing for female singers as until recently he was dating last year’s finalist Rebecca Ferguson!

According to our sources, the couple met when One Direction performed on the X Factor, swapped numbers and the rest is history. Perrie blushes every time the phone rings, which is very cute.  Zayn better behave himself as Perrie could have anyone she wants such is the hysteria surrounding Little Mix right now. Apparently, they get a sack of fanmail to the X Factor house each week and they haven’t even won the show yet!

We love how the girls dress – they work the black and white look perfectly, each expressing their personality but looking very much like a group.  Perrie’s high waisted trousers are very similar to the Vila Crush Pants at Very, which you can team with some Black Sequin Braces.  Alternatively, stick with a black and white theme and find a dress that has elements of all the girls outfits. The Motel Bodycon Bow Tie Dress combines Perrie’s bow tie with Jade’s mesh top and shows off your legs like Leigh Anne did.

Misha B and Marcus Collins seemed to be pretty low-key and went on stage and returned home without causing much drama. But Amelia Lily is still struggling to find her confidence. She confided to sources that she can’t recover from getting voted out in the first week and thinks the public don’t like her as much because they’ve had less time to get to know her. She’s instructed stylists to dress her so that she gets as much attention as possible and they certainly did that for the Talk Talk gig. Amelia Lily is good at making diva demands!

Her trousers are just wild and if you like this look you’ll be happy to hear there’s a great selection of printed trousers at Very. Or you could even experiment by browsing the fancy dress section, where there are some Zebra Print Trousers for just £15. When they’re on, nobody will know they’re from the fancy dress section.

The X factor semi final is on 3 December with the final on 10 December. It’s TV worth staying in for! x
