The group have insisted they will stay together and try to make a career as a band but in the past month there have already been arguments behind the scenes about singing parts and styling.
Show stylist Grace Woodward said: ‘I feel Belle Amie are pulling in different directions.
The 23-year-old claimed Cowell should have spent more time helping them because One Direction - made up of five handsome teenage boys - were always going to be a hit with the audience.
The group, made up of Niall Horan, 17, Harry Styles, 16, Zain Malik, 17, Liam Payne, 17 and Louis Tomlinson, 18, already have huge fan base of teenage girls, which dominate the voting for this kind of show.
I think it’s just a lot easier for them than us.’Publicly Miss Wardman, and fellow bandmates Esther Campbell,17 Rebecca Creighton, 21, and Geneva Lane, 20, have insisted that Cowell was a great mentor but it is understood privately they felt that they needed more attention from him.
Last month, Louis Walsh accused him of only being interested in the boy band, which he manufactured at the Boot Camp stage from five individual singers. They may be too afraid to say anything but I'm not.’The group were voted off the show on Sunday night after a sing off with controversial contestant Katie Waissel.
He was just having a bad day when he said all that stuff about her.'They sat down and really talked about it all this morning and now the air is cleared and everything is fine and everyone is happy.'‘I think for us, we just wanted a little bit more help, just because it’s harder for us to get people to like us, to get the right song and the right styling.
In an interview with Viking FM, she added: ‘You could put the boys out there in bin bags and sing Baa Baa Black Sheep and they’d go through with flying colours.
Now the failed girl band have accused Simon Cowell of caring more about the ‘cute boys’ in One Direction.
Blonde Sophia Wardman insisted that they needed more help because girl groups notoriously always struggle to win over the voting public on the talent show.
Belle Amie have repeatedly appeared in the bottom two prompting Walsh to say on the show: ‘You've got a problem because you're on your own in this competition.'Simon is putting all his energies into One Direction and it's not fair. The judges went to deadlock with each having two judges vote each, prompting producers to look at the amount of public votes each act had – with the lowest being axed from the show.
The girl group made a great show of praising Cowell after their departure claiming they had a ‘good working relationship’ and he was ‘very hands on’.
He was spotted giving her a hug as they left the X Factor studios in Wembley, north-west London, after the live show on Saturday night but they did not really settle their differences until this morning.
