X Factor's Bradley and Ottavio and reveal what REALLY happened with the chicken

Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro

Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro's row over chicken had every one talking after The X Factor 2016 tonight.

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

So they instead decided to audition separately before the judges persuaded them to reunite.

They went on to sing Pussycat Dolls' Buttons together and made scraped their way through to bootcamp with three yeses.

Simon Cowell said no, telling the pair: "I like you two but you weren't great individually, I actually think you're worse together."

Chatting after the show aired this evening, Bradley and Ottavio revealed just what happened to cause their split.

"I wanted some dinner and he gave me some chicken, after waiting quite a long time, and I cut into it and it's pink," Ottavio explained.

Bradley complained: "I just wanted him to say thank you, I tired, I didn't want him to throw it onto my knee caps."

"I should have said thank you," admitted Ottavio.

The pair say there have been no major rows since their audition.

"It's always like banter, banter, banter with us, we're such big personalities, we just clash but no big fallouts," Bradley explained.

Ottavio quipped: "I stick to boil in the bag rice from now on."

The X Factor 2016 auditions return Sunday night at 8PM on ITV.

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