The Judges Houses stage of the X Factor is under-way RIGHT NOW – although it won’t hit our TV screens for another few weeks – and there’s been drama already at Kelly Rowland’s Malibu pad!

The ex-Destiny’s Child star has been choosing her final four in Malibu, but had to call the police when men on jet-skis disrupted filming.

It’s said that the men purposely revved the engines of their jet-skis, shouted and waved – while zig-zagging across the water in front of Kelly’s home.

Apparently the noise became so loud that contestants couldn’t hear Kelly telling them if they had got through, or were going home!

Host Dermot O’Leary told The Sun Newspaper: “This guy was doing it on purpose. He kept waving and we had to call the police…the cops are like Miami Vice, and they sorted it out. We did have to stop filming for a while though.”

Phew! We’re glad that was resolved quickly; we wouldn’t want to miss out on the contestants’ reactions as they’re told they will be appearing on the live shows!

Kelly’s group – rumoured to be the girls – had better behave while on the show! Apparently Kelly has banned her X factor hopefuls from smoking, drinking and partying, as she’s determined to win the competition, and wants them to stay focused!

She said: “I didn’t go out until I was at least 22 and I didn’t party until two years ago. I’ve always been strict. I don’t drink a lot, I don’t smoke. I want to succeed.”

The show hasn’t even started yet – but X factor contestants have already faced a shock twist at yesterday’s boot camp auditions.

Gary Barlow, who has replaced Simon Cowell as head judge, booted 35 hopefuls out of the competition – before they’d even had a chance to sing! Could Gary be following in Simon’s footsteps as Mr. Nasty?

Gary and his fellow judges – Tulisa Constostavlos, Kelly Rowland and X Factor veteran Louis Walsh-  broke the news to devastated contestants yesterday, as they gathered outside boot camp HQ.

According to the Daily Mail, Gary stated: “We don’t believe everyone standing in front of us has the potential to make it all the way in this competition. Some of you are going home now.”

Singer Kelly Rowland added: “While you were partying last night, we were looking at your audition tapes, we only want to work with people who can go all the way.”

With this kind of twist at the audition stage, who knows what surprises the judges have in store for the live shows!

We’ve already heard that there are loads of new and exciting things planned for the eight series of the TV talent show.

The live final is rumoured to be taking place at Wembley Arena  this year, and contestants will be filmed – Big Brother style – as they live together in the X factor house. We didn’t think we could get much more excited – but we just did! Don’t forget to tune in on Saturday 18th August,  this is one you’re not going to want to miss!

And – if you can’t wait until then – check out the new X factor trailer, and tell us what you think!
