It seems things are getting tense on the X-Factor show. Welsh singer Lucie Jones was left in 'agony' after she was struck in the face by a tambourine by show rival Joe McElderry back stage during rehearsals.

Lucie was said to have cried out in pain after the Joe accidentally struck her with a tambourine. Injured Lucie was left stunned, wondering whether her nose had been broken after she reportedly crying out: 'Ouch! What the hell did you do that for? It really hurt.'

She has now been left with a bruise on her nose which is going to have to be covered up by 'extra-thick' make-up. Mortified McElderry raced to apologise for his careless fling and 'kept apologising'.

But his pleas seemingly didn't go down too well with Jones. An insider told The Sun: 'Lucie looked very miffed, even though Joe obviously didn't mean it.'

X-Factor creative director Brian Friedman has sensationally claimed that Cheryl Cole will not be The X Factor's winning judge this year. Cheryl who mentors Joe McElderry was accused of making poor contestant choices.

Friedman told the Daily Star: "Cheryl made some very big errors of choice this year and I don't think she'll win."

He continued: "I think Cheryl went for people who would win votes instead of the better singers, but I think she made a mistake. I would have put Ethan Boroian and Duane Lamonte through.

"I don't think Cheryl is pushing them enough. I don't think she is choosing the right songs."

Cole lost her first act on the second week as Rikki Loney was voted off the competition leaving her with Joe and Lloyd Daniels

The Girls Aloud star guided Alexandra Burke to victory on the programme last year who has gone one to score two No1's in the singles chart.
