XFactor 2013 spoilers: The Dolly Rockers are back!

X Factor 2013 judges

Girl group trio the Dolly Rockers are hoping to make it on The X Factor again this year.

The girls had originally been rejected by the show back in 2006, before going on to get signed.

The tiro - then formed of Lucie Kay, Sophie King and Brooke Challinor - were picked up by EMI and released two songs, one of which just missed the Top 40.

But following a debut album that failed to materialise, the group saw a line up change, with Daniele Owen replacing Brooke.

Now the group are back on The X Factor and through to bootcamp - despite previously insisting:
"A lot of people who have been on X Factor try to capitalise on the connection. We're trying to put it behind us"

The Dolly Rockers aren't the only ones returning to the show this year either.

We previously revealed that amongst the wannabes making comeback are Jade Richards and Melanie McCabe, as well as vocal group Rough Copy.

But insiders for The X Factor have defended the amount of familiar faces who have made it through to the next stage of auditions.

“We often say to people when they get the push at a late stage that they might need some more practice to get where they want to be," one commented. “Twelve months is a long time to do that so they may well come back and be such a great singer they win.”

The X Factor will air next month on ITV.
