X Factor finalists Stereo Kicks don’t seem to be having too good a time of it at the moment, what with narrowly escaping elimination and weathering rumours that they are about to become a six-piece.
However things just got even more confusing for the band after reports that a nude selfie of band member Jake Sims has leaked across social media.
According to reports the snap – which features the 19-year-old posing in front of the bathroom mirror – was taken in 2012 and posted to his Twitter page, bearing the legend: ‘Here’s my nude, lol. Yolo x x ((sorry if you see this mum)).’
And while he later deleted the snap, he is reportedly ‘mortified’ that it has now resurfaced, with some Twitter users having threatened to leak the offending shot if he did not follow them.
‘Jake posted the picture several years ago and deleted it shortly afterwards,’ a source told the paper.
‘He is mortified that this has now come to light – he is totally committed to making a success of the Stereo Kicks and doesn’t want anything to distract from that.’
Yikes. Still, at least there seems to be one bright spot on the Stereo Kicks horizon – in that rumours of them being slimmed down to a six-piece act appear to be untrue.
Louis had previously hinted at two members being culled on Sunday night’s Xtra Factor, after the boys narrowly escaped the chop ahead of Chloe Jasmine – but they have now taken to Twitter to confirm they are very much an eight-piece, thank you very much:
