X Factor judges' 'houses' revealed as a sham
It's rented accommodation
The X Factor judges, minus Dannii Minogue Despite the best efforts by producers this week to claim innocence, it seems the X Factor has come under fire for a bit of creative deception.

The reality TV show shows the final groups of hopefuls whisked off to exotic locations - for Simon Cowell's group, his 'house' is Marbella, while Sharon Osbourne was filmed at a property in Los Angeles, Dannii Minogue in an Ibizan villa and Walsh in a lavishly decorated Dublin townhouse.

"That wasn't my house. That wasn't Sharon's house or Dannii's house or Simon's house either," Louis Walsh told BBC Two's Graham Norton Show. "Sharon sold her house to Christina Aguilera, so that was a rented house. Mine was a rented house. I wouldn't have had all that rubbish in my house - the stuff on the walls and the lights and all that."

A spokesperson for the show was quick to point out a small difference in the wording however, which may have fooled fans of the show. "The contestants are invited to a house. We call them the judges' houses, not the judges' homes.

"Sharon had only just moved in to her new home and hadn't even unpacked so we couldn't have filmed it there. We have never said they are the judges' real homes and it has been this way for the past four years."
