X Factor's foul-mouthed flashback

This year's X Factor kicks off with a foul-mouthed flashback as a contestant from an earlier series loses his temper at the judges again.

North London teenager George returns to the show two years after his "train wreck" audition ended with him throwing his microphone to the ground and telling Simon Cowell to shut up.

This time, he tells the panel he wants to "clear my name" before launching into a tuneless rendition of Give Me Everything by Pitbull.

The 19-year-old wanders off stage towards the crowd before the music is cut off leaving an unimpressed Gary Barlow to tell him: "Some things mature nicely like a good wine or a cheese but you've matured like a bad curry."

He then gets into a shouting match branding new judge Tulisa Contostavlos "some scumbag" before a backstage rant which sees Dermot O'Leary tell him to "watch your mouth" after he calls the N-Dubz star a "dog".
