X Factor 2012 final 12: GMD3 to change their name!

GMD3

X Factor 2012 finalists GMD3 are to change their name, it has been revealed.

The trio were seen making it through the final 12 of the competition last night, but will change their identity before the live shows next Saturday.

The group's current GMD3 name is formed from their names Greg, Micky and Dan

Speaking to the judges on stage about their name at their audition, the group explained: “It’s just our initials… and then there are three of us too.”

“That’s clever, I like it!” laughed Gary Barlow.

However at judges' houses, Louis Walsh's celeb mentor Sharon Osbourne wasn't too keen, saying that the name sounded like a virus!

Chatting to the official ITV1 X Factor website, GMD3 revealed: "We’ve been dying to change our name for ages. People forget it and often confuse it with GMTV!

"We’d really love our fans and twitter followers to help us out by sending in their ideas for names. If there’s a suggestion we like, we’ll use it.”

You can send your name suggestions to the official website at xfactor@fremantlemediauk.com. *Please remember to email your suggestions to the official X Factor website by midday, 3rd October 2012 and don't forget to include your name, phone number and age*
