X Factor leads to international incident

LONDON - ITV talent show The X Factor has caused an international row after the Chinese Embassy lodged an official complaint about noise at the contestants' home.

The Chinese Ambassador, who lives next door to the finalists, complained about the noise and disturbance caused by fans outside the house, reports The Sun. A spokesperson for the embassy told the paper: "I can confirm there was a complaint. The reason is several times late at night and early in the mornings the teenage fans were noisy and disturbing."

Ambassador Madam Fu Ying was also said to be irritated by the litter and graffiti left by the teenagers who are hanging around in the upmarket area. Fans are believed to be travelling from as far as Ireland in the hope of catching a glimpse of the show's contestants and earlier in the week, one neighbour complained to the police after a girl was seen flashing at John and Edward.

The complaints have put ITV under increasing pressure to move the finalists to a new home.
