Cowell's villa trashed

Simon Cowell has threatened to dock his X Factor contestants' future pay after reports they trashed his luxury rented villa in Spain.

The hopefuls - who were in Marbella to impress Simon at boot camp - are said to have caused damage to precious carpets and designer furniture.

They have also been accused of drinking Cowell's stock of vintage champagne and imported beer, and keeping him up into the early hours through their noisy antics.

The pop mogul has admitted they did wake him up and says he might charge them for the clean-up in future to teach them a lesson.
