This news comes before reports emerged that gunfire was heard at Simon’s £10million mansion in Nice, France.

As security rushed in to protect the music mogul, it has been revealed that it was a farmer shooting rabbits in a nearby field.

Detailing the event, an insider told the Daily Mail: ‘There was a lot of panic among the contestants. We didn’t know where the gunshots were coming from. We couldn’t see where the shots were being fired.’

They continued: ‘At the time of the incident, Cheryl wasn’t there… It turned out to be a farmer shooting rabbits in a nearby field. There was high security because of the terror threat level in France. Security did an excellent job dealing with the situation. But no one was in any danger.’

Another source told The Sun: ‘Everyone was terrified. Several gunshots were heard in quick succession… There was already tight security because of the current climate. It turned out the shots had come from a farmer who was shooting rabbits in a field rather than anything more sinister.’

Scary stuff…
