X Factor 2016: Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro 'face AXE over bad behaviour'

X Factor duo Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro have reportedly been given an ultimatum by producers.

According to The Sun newspaper, the pair were told to clean up their act following wild antics at boot camp, which airs this Saturday night.

The duo were supposedly reprimanded by the X Factor team during filming earlier this year following the welcome party where things may have got a little out of control.

A source told the tabloid: "Ottavio and Bradley were warned to clean up their act or they will be kicked off the show.”

Following Ryan Ruckledge's boot camp blowout last year, it was claimed that this year saw similar drunken shenanigans.

However a show spokesperson played down the claims amid accusations that producers were encouraging acts to play up to the cameras.

They said: “A welcome party was thrown for contestants where anyone over 18 was allowed two drinks.

“No one was ever encouraged to misbehave and all acts are auditioned on the merit of their performances and nothing else.”

Bradley and Ottavio went before the judges in the room auditions earlier this month in what was one of the most bizarre scenes on The X Factor.

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 sing separately before the judges persuaded them to reunite as a duo.

After singing Pussycat Dolls' Buttons together, Bradley and Ottavio scraped their way through to bootcamp with three yeses.

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

The X Factor 2016's final auditions air this Saturday at 8PM and the show continues with a bumper bootcamp episode on Sunday night from the earlier time of 7:30PM.
