‘Gary and Nicole were rude’ blast X Factor rejects MK1
Tuesday 23 October 2012
Axed duo MK1 have hit out at judges Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger this week for whispering to each other as they sang to keep their place in the competition.
Simeon Dixon and Charlie Rundle, both 19, found themselves in the bottom two on Sunday nights show after receiving the lowest public vote along with former chimney sweep Kye Sones.
As they desperately tried to stay in the competition with a heartfelt rendition of The Scripts The Man Who Can’t Be Moved, the vote went down to deadlock after Gary and Nicole voted for Kye where it was revealed that MK1 came last in the audience votes.
However, the pair have branded Gary and Nicole ‘rude’ after they were spotted talking through their performance.
Charlie told a UK newspaper: ‘They were whispering to each other and I thought ‘I’m trying to sing for my place and they were chatting’. That’s just rude.’
The pair also claimed the phone lines went down on Sunday afternoon meaning their devoted fans were unable to vote for them.
Rapper Simeon said: 'MK1’s vote line went down. A lot of our fans were tweeting saying they couldn’t vote for us because there was something wrong with our line.'
Although, a spokesperson for the show denied there was a fault.
The outspoken duo also labelled X Factor singer Chris Maloney as the show'sbiggest diva.
'Chris surviving was a bit of a shocker. He got really lucky. He is the biggest diva’ said Simeon.
'If there's not a drink around or he doesn't get his food on time or go home in the right taxi, then it's a bit of a nightmare. The simple things that shouldn't matter, matter to him’ added Charlie.
