image for Matt Cardle, Katie Waissel, Wagner: "Let's Have A Discount Card!"

Stars of this season's X Factor are demanding a new perk for contestants - high street discount cards.

They believe that once the show is over, there's little left for the attention-craving wannabes.

"They give so much," said one insider. "The nation feeds off their emotions and efforts for months and then, puff! it's all over.

"So this year, the guys and girls on X Factor have got together and demanded that the show's producers put together a discount card for former contestants."

Ands it's not just X Factor stars who should benefit, they say. Shows like Britain's Got Talent should offer the same benefits and Big Brother's ex-housemates should get something similar.

"They're not asking much," the insider added. "How about money off dry-cleaning at Shetchleys, or photo-processing and accessories at Jessops or Snappy Snaps?

"McColl's, WH Smith, Gregg's - they could all be useful for these talent show alumni."
