The X Factor producers had no idea about the stunt and the girls say they’ve been given the cold shoulder ever since.

But the sisters admitted they’d previously planned a racy stunt – involving snogging conjoined male twins on stage – but it was cut by producers three hours before the show.

“On week one, on the first live show when we performed Kids In America, we had a set up where we were going to make out with two conjoined twins during the breakdown part,” Jazzy explained.

“It was written in as part of the show and then three hours before our show, it was pulled. Louis saw the rehearsal and then they said no – they wanted us to do well on the show and stay on longer and thought that by pulling it they would win us more votes…”
