The trio of stars are performing on the celebrity version of the ITV talent competition under the name Try Star, and as they prepare to hit the stage for the first live show tonight (26.10.19), it has been claimed their performance could be set to raise a few eyebrows.

Producers are reportedly concerned their 'Magic Mike'-inspired routine may end up rivalling the 34 Ofcom complaints 'Britain's Got Talent' received earlier this year, for a plunging dress Amanda Holden wore.

A source said: "The boys have been telling everyone that they hope their performance doesn't end up rivalling that famous Amanda Holden Ofcom complaint.

"They are all hoping to impress Nicole Scherzinger, who has a front row seat to what is set to be the raunchiest performance the X Factor stage has ever seen!

"But producers have told the boys that the dance poles they wanted to use are one step too far and they've been removed from the creative.

"They've drawn the line at poles but the lads are still set on getting all the ladies and men hot under the collar as they take to the stage on Saturday night."

Try Star left production staff "blushing" during rehearsals this week, and there is reportedly concern they will "shock" viewers.

The source explained: "During dress rehearsals nobody knew where to look.

"It was all getting a bit too steamy in the new studio - and a lot of the production staff were left blushing.

"There's still some worry that the lads may leave viewers shocked by their hip action antics as they fight to get through to next week's show."

And despite their raunchy antics, the rugby professionals are said to be taking the competition seriously.

Speaking to The Sun Online, the insider added: "The boys can always laugh at themselves but they are taking the process really seriously and want their X Factor Celebrity experience to launch them as a boyband."
