JLS were left a little red faced after police questioned them following an alleged car incident.

The boys, JB Gill, Oritse Williams, Aston Merrygold and Marvin Humes, spent the first part of the evening smiling at cameras with JB and girlfriend Chloe Tangney meeting Aston at the capital’s exclusive Rose nightclub.

PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: The special lights Simon Cowell uses on Britain’s Got Talent to give him that ‘healthy glow’

Cowell gives ITV an Electra shock by bringing former Baywatch star on to Britain’s Got Talent panel
He was the king of reality TV who could not put a foot wrong in the eyes of his ITV paymasters.

But Simon Cowell’s insistence on parachuting in former Baywatch star Carmen Electra from America to the panel of Britain’s Got Talent has widened a growing gulf between him and the channel.

He decided the former topless model — generally regarded as a talent-free zone — should remain a judge for the show’s London auditions in place of Amanda Holden, who had been declared ready to return to work by doctors after she nearly died giving birth.

My sources say ITV executives were ‘aghast’ at the decision and ‘horrified’ by Ms Electra’s below-par performance on the panel.

The Hackney Heroine shines on Britain’s Got Talent as Simon Cowell calls her ‘fantastic’
A woman who was nicknamed the Hackney Heroine after last year’s riots has become the surprise sensation of Britain’s Got Talent.

Pauline Pearce was told by the hard to impress Simon Cowell that she had a wonderful singing voice as she was voted through to the next round of auditions.
