Simon Cowell's booze plot to ramp up sex

By RICHARD WHITE and LUCY CONNOLLY

Published: Today

X FACTOR contestants are being plied with free booze in a bid to ramp up the sex and scandal in this year's series.

And cameras will be in finalists' bedrooms 24 HOURS A DAY on Simon Cowell's orders to make sure viewers get to gawp at every alcohol-fuelled grope.

The drinking began last night when 250 wannabes glugged free champagne and cocktails after checking into their hotel for the show's bootcamp stage. They were also encouraged to hop into the hot tubs at the four-star Selsdon Park hotel in Croydon, South London.

Those who become finalists will then move into a mansion together where fridges in adults' rooms will be stocked with free booze.

And nightly pool parties will also be encouraged by eager bosses.

A source told The Sun: "Producers want scandal, sex and break-ups.

"They know it will freshen up the series and boost ratings. The house is going to be one long party for the singers. And it will all be filmed to titillate viewers."

Show supremo Simon, 51, decided to install cameras in all the bedrooms after the success of fly-on-the-wall ITV2 hit The Only Way Is Essex.

And an insider said many contestants have been chosen for looks and "romantic availability" rather than talent to boost odds of flings.

The X Factor kicks off on ITV1 this Saturday.
