Rumour has it ITV bosses are splashing out a whopping £4,000-a-week to use the luxury, six bedroom Connaught House.

Lucky contestants will be able to enjoy a swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room, as well as an in-house gym and ‘chill room’ at the state of the art pad – already dubbed the ‘naughty house’ according to reports.

But after moving into the plush residence, it was back to work for the contestants, who’ve been reminded they’ll have to use the sprawling houses facilities to rehearse every day.

Over 25s finalist Kitty Brucknell was spotted taking part in an official shoot for the live shows – starting on Saturday – while James Michael got down to practising with his guitar on the lawn.
