X Factor axes audience for Boot Camp

Cheryl Cole’s ongoing battle with malaria, alongside Dannii Minogue’s maternity leave, has necessitated a change to the format of X Factor.
The Boot Camp phase will now go ahead without a live audience watching.
Live audiences, so long a feature of Britain’s Got Talent, were introduced by Simon Cowell last year to freshen the X Factor format.
By and large, this has been a huge success but now show bosses have announced that the hopefuls will not perform for members of the public.
An X Factor representative said: "Due to the unusual circumstances, we are changing the format of Boot Camp slightly this year and we will not be inviting an audience to watch the contestants being put through their paces."
Cheryl Cole was diagnosed with malaria following a trip to Tanzania with her friend Derek Hough, of Dancing With The Stars fame (the US version of Strictly Come Dancing).
There are reports that the hopefuls in Dannii Minogue’s category will fly to Australia for the Judges’ Homes stage of the competition to mark her return to the show.
