Bella Penfold likens X Factor house to Ibiza holiday

Share article:

ella Penfold has likened "The X Factor" house to an "Ibiza holiday".

The contestants are supposedly on a strict alcohol and sex ban but contestant Bella - who is in the girls category and is being mentored by show boss Simon Cowell - insists they are all having a great time.

She said: "I absolutely love living in the house, it's like going on a group holiday to Ibiza with all your friends - apart from we're working really hard, which is cool. We've been told under strict instruction there is no fraternising with any of the staff or any of the contestants. That was one of the rules, but everyone's stuck to it really well. A lot of people have got partners and everyone is being really respectful."

However, Bella confessed that the house - which is currently home to 14 acts, including a 15 piece choir, a five piece boy band and two duos, Acacia and Alicia and Misunderstood - does get messy.

She added to The Sun Online: "Some people are a little messier than others, some go to sleep earlier than others, but it's about finding the balance and being considerate of other people. It does get messy in here just because we are all up at different times, getting ready really quickly. We come back and have to tidy up. If you ask people nicely they will usually comply with what you're asking of them. Everyone's being really really good. There's no friction in the house at all. It's amazing we all have the same interests. It's not like we've got nothing to talk about, it's not like we don't get on. We all have this amazing passion for performing and singing."
