X Factor favourite Louisa Johnson put in isolation after mystery illness puts her semi final hopes into doubt!

Louisa’s been put in isolation to stop her 'mystery illness' affecting the others

Our* X Factor* favourite Louisa Johnson is not having a good week. After admitting she was feeling very ill on the show over the weekend, it’s now reported she’s been put into isolation by the show’s bosses who want to try and make sure no one else gets sick.

Louisa, 17, is now said to be worried that her illness could affect her performance during next week’s semi final. Although Diana Vickers was given a free pass to the next round back in 2008 after falling ill, Louisa won’t be that lucky because it would mean she’d be walking straight into the final.

“Louisa is putting on a brave face but she can hardly speak,” an insider told The Sun. “We're worried she could be too ill to continue next week. We couldn't give her a free pass to the final, there would be uproar.”

The Essex girl is now being kept away from Lauren Murray, Che Chesterman and Reggie and Bollie. The insider added: “If any of the other contestants come down with the same thing we will really struggle. Olly [Murs] is also sick and struggling.

The bugs going round at the moment are really nasty.”

It was clear to see Louisa was struggling over the weekend but she made it through, with Fourth Impact leaving the show on Sunday night.

Get well soon, Louisa!

Fresh from crowning Max and Jess winners of Love Island Caz Flack got her (very good) legs out in a leather mini and hipster Bella Freud knit. We love this hair style on Flack, so fun.

How babe-in did Rochelle look in her orange suede Victoria Beckham dress? Expertly styled- up with a skinny black belt and strappies. Our fave.

A loud Versace mini with sequins and pointy stilettos gave Rita a totally 80s feel. That sleek high pony works, too.
