Harry Styles is the latest X Factor contestant to be added to the sick list.
ITV X Factor bosses are becoming concerned about this weekend live show as the causality list begins to climb.
Matt Cardle may not be well enough to perform. Mary Byrne missed Tuesday’s Narnia premier due to a sore throat, Cher Lloyd is said to be nursing a bad cold and on This Morning, F Factor’s Matt Edmondson revealed that curly haired cutie Harry Styles is also ill.
Speaking about the One Direction singer, Matt told Eamon Holmes and Ruth Langsford:
Harry is suffering as well. We went down to film on Monday and it was weird to see just four members of the band, he wasn’t there because he was feeling poorly. He’s alright because he’s got people to back him up. If he can’t sing other people can, but for Matt, if he can’t sing how is he going to win the competition?
X Factor vocal coach Yvie Burnett is hoping that all five acts will be alright on the night. She said:
Apart from when Diana Vickers had laryngitis, we’ve never had a night where somebody actually can’t sing on the show.
She also admitted that the team have been struggling to choose songs that fit with this weeks Club Classics theme. Yvie explained:
It’s a tough theme. We found it so hard this week to find songs. It could be your disco club classic or it could be really up to date.
