She's been under a lot of pressure recently. Indeed, Lauren Murray even removed herself from the X Factor contestants' house – citing the constant presence of cameras as her reason.

"I felt like I could never relax. It's intense," the 26-year-old said in the aftermath.

But despite the change in living arrangements, it seems that Ms Murray is still a little on edge.

Indeed, video footage from the weekend appears to show that she SHOVED a fellow contestant on stage. Ouch.

Eagle-eyed viewers took to Twitter following the incident – in which Lauren can be seen shunning the embrace of a member of 4th Impact as the public vote was announced.

The solo star, who is being mentored by Rita Ora, also appeared agitated and upset at the time. 

Understandably, plenty of fans of the show were unimpressed with her behaviour – with several suggesting that the Essex-native had gotten too big for her boots.

Many also claimed to have seen Lauren say "get the f**k off me" at the same time.

Though at least the girlband in question were more than happy to brush off the apparent snub; after last night's show 4th Impact tweeted that Lauren was like a "big sister" – making sure to include plenty of heart emojiis in their message too. 

Meanwhile, Ms Murray herself also took to the same social media platform to downplay the situation. Confirming that she "adored" her rivals, she added that people just "love a bit of drama".


OK, so the ratings haven't been as impressive for Cowell & Co recently. AND sure we know it's probably all fixed from the outset, but we still love the X Factor.

Apart from having an excuse to stuff our faces and sit on the couch every Saturday night, we also love all the behind the scenes gossip (in fact, that's arguably a lot more entertaining than what's going on on stage). 

And following the swift exit of Kiera Weathers and Seann Miley Moore over recent weekends, it has now been reported that Lauren Murray had also left the contestants' house. 

Though she is still a part of the competition itself, Lauren has packed her bags and departed from the swanky pad. 

The 26 year old told The Mirror that she found living in the house too "intense" (although we're wondering how living in a luxury London mansion can be too intense). 

"I found the filming the hardest to deal with," said Rita Ora's girl. "The camera is there when you wake up, it's there when you go to sleep. I felt like I could never relax. It's intense."

Lauren went on to describe living in the house as "Big Brother meets Glee meets prison". Well, nope, that does not sound fun. 

The singer went on to discuss how she found the six-chair challenge particularly demanding. 

"I was drained. I definitely think they should get rid of six-chair challenge. I found it horrific. But they won't – it's too good TV. Imagine if I had fainted. Someone would have got a bonus!"


We applaud Lauren for her candid honesty but we're not sure how much longer she will last if she keeps criticising the nature of the show? Watch out girl! 


The final twelve X Factor contestants have been put through months of gruelling auditions, trials and competitions, but now it seems the lucky dozen can live in luxury for the rest of their time on the show. 

The Mail Online exclusively revealed that this year's X Factor house is in Barnet's Beech Hill, North London and costs a cool £7m (€9m) to buy or £20,000 (€27,000) to rent each month.

It comes complete with a cinema room, an indoor swimming pool and a steam room as well as a state-of-the-art car lift (OK, then?). 

The seven-bedroom detached property is in one of London's most prestigious streets and described by estate agents as a 'premier road', where homes are entered via high electric gates.

The gates open up into a large driveway where cars can collect contestants and take them to the show's nearby studio.

The unveiling of the property comes after X Factor judges Simon, Cherly, Rita and Nick chose their final three acts for the live rounds of the show. 

Judge Nick Grimshaw selected Mason Noise, Che Chesterman and Seann Miley Moore as his final three Boys, while Rita Ora announced Louisa Johnson, Lauren Murray and Keira Weathers as her Girls.

Cheryl Fernandez Versini has 4th Impact, Alien Uncovered, and Reggie n Bollie as her Groups.

Simon Cowell has Max Stone, Bupsi and Anton Stephans in his Overs category.
