Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro's X Factor 2016 audition(s) tonight provide plenty of drama.

The pair had originally planned to audition together but had an argument before their performance over raw chicken of all things.

Now singing solo, 24 year-old fashion PR student from Southampton Ottavio is first to face the judges.

"Think of it like this, you've got Cher, you've got Prince,... Ottavio," he declares. "I was in a group with Bradley, today is the first time since I've seen Bradley [since splitting] and it's been as awkward as hell.

"I just want to show people, I am different but I own it."

Telling the judges that his outrageous outfit was inspired by a Kinder Egg, Ottavio sings for the judges before Bradley has his try.

Reflecting on the argument with Ottavio over chicken, 23 year-old restaurant manager Bradley complains: "He didn't even say thanks though. I tried."

After singing R. Kelly's Ignition, Paul is asked by the judges to reunite with Ottavio and audition together.

They go on to sing Pussycat Dolls' Buttons, saying to Nicole: "It's an honour to sing Pussycat Dolls in front of you."

However their future - either together or as soloists - is far from certain.

"I like you two but you weren't great individually, I actually think you're worse together," concludes Simon Cowell.

But what will the other judges think? Could Bradley and Ottavio be reunited again or could only one of them make it through to bootcamp?

The X Factor 2016 auditions air Saturday night from 8:15PM and return Sunday at 8PM.

And don't forget all new Xtra Factor LIVE which airs straight after on ITV2, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson.
