X Factor 2012: Union J say they're mummy's boys!

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 finalsts Union J have revealed their biggest fans aren't teenage girls, but mums and nans!

The group is made up of Triple J - Jaymi Hensley, JJ Hamblet, and Josh Cuthbert - and George Shelley - who were put together at judges' houses as a four piece.

"Me, JJ and Josh entered as Triple J - but didn't make it through boot camp," Jaymi explains this week: "Then there was a problem with Rough Copy's visas.

"Louis told us we had George, a solo artist, to join us."

Speaking to Now magazine, Jaymi revealed that their biggest fans were their own families!

"We have got a girl band of mums supporting us," he said. "My sister cried so much during auditions, she passed out!

"All the nans like Josh. We are such mummy's boys.

"If we had a big party with loads of models, our mums would be there, putting clothes on all the models."

The group will be performing for only the second time as a group on Saturday night, as the live shows kick off.
