Ben Suffering From A Bad Throat Days Before Live Show

Ben was hardly able to speak yesterday, due to being quite ill with a bad throat. He had visited the doctor and was going back for another visit to have his throat re-checked, which made him unable to do his sound a proper check along with Leona, Ray, Eton Road, The MacDonald Brothers and Robert in preparation for Saturday’s live show.

He is still looking forward to the show, however, when he will be singing “I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends.”

The X Factor mansion - A Taste Of Stardom

The X Factor mansion, where the final six acts are living, is becoming ever more spacious as the weeks go by and another act is booted off each week. The house, which is situated in one of London’s trendiest neighbourhoods would set anyone back around a cool 5 million pounds and is certainly giving the remaining finalists a taste of the stardom which they all dream to have if they are the winner of The X Factor.

The remaining finalists, Ben, Leona, Robert, Ray, Eton Road and The Macdonalds get to enjoy the use of a luxury plasma TV, a Jukebox with all the latest hits, electric piano, computer/games station, banqueting table and private gym to name a few. No wonder they don’t want to go back home!
