X Factor: What Really Didn’t Happen At Simon Cowell’s Villa

by | 4th, September 2010

REMEMBER that story about X Factor hopefuls “trashing” Simon Cowell’s villa in Marbella? Remember how the word “trashed” or a variant was used in very tabloid story of the alleged event?

Cameron Neilson, a singer with Princes & Rogues, read the stories. He tells The Daily Record:

It was all untrue. I’d love to say I partied all night in Simon Cowell’s house but I didn’t.

“We were up at 6am and were auditioning, practising or being filmed until 1am. And we didn’t stay at the villa, we stayed at a hotel. After the filming finished, all the groups went straight back to the hotel. We were never anywhere near alcohol.

“I don’t think any one of us had a drink.”

The Daily Record is owned by Trinity Mirror, owners of the Daily Mirror, which told us on its front page that the villa was “trashed”…

Such are the facts in your trusty tabloids.
