Contestants sent to Harley St doc.

ALL the X Factor contestants have been sent to see a Harley Street doctor, because show bosses fear their voices are strained to the limit.

The check-ups come after Diana Vickers pulled out of last week's show claiming weeks of singing had brought on laryngitis. Hoping to be fit for Saturday, she visited the specialist yesterday, as did Alexandra Burke and Rachel Hylton. A show source said: "Everyone is seeing the doctor to be checked out and see if there is any medication they can take to help them stay strong and keep their voices in perfect condition."

Bosses are also advising contestants to rest their voices and not stay up late.
