Two acts will be booted off the X Factor this weekend, it has been reported.
The shock move has been taken after the reality show reportedly lost millions of viewers over a period of a few weeks, reports the Mirror.
Former judge and executive producer Simon Cowell has also spoken to the contestants for the first time, claims the paper.
He reportedly warned the contestants that he has concerns about their "quality and dedication".
A source told the publication:
"Everyone is worried about how well the show is doing and Gary took matters into his own hands by arranging a gathering.
"He told them they need to make sure the show gets stronger as they don't want to be beaten by [Strictly Come Dancing] again."
It has also been confirmed that Lady Gaga will perform on Sunday night's results show.
Meanwhile the Daily Star claims that new judge Gary Barlow has been having his Cowell-style put downs written for him by James Cordens creative partner and friend, writer Ben Winston.
A source on the ITV reality show revealed Barlow's secret, saying:
"Since Gary was given the title head judge he wanted to make sure he matched Simon in the put- down stakes. Hes done a great job, and no wonder.
"Hes got his mate Ben, whos very talented, to help out. But viewers might not be laughing now they know hes fed some of the lines."
A spokesman for Barlow however, said:
"Bens been a friend of Garys for years and, if anything, has just been giving him moral support. No-one is telling him what to do."
