X Factor 2016: Are Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro in the live shows?


Have Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro made The X Factor 2016 live shows?

The wacky pair didn't originally get a spot in judges' houses but were called back at the Six Chair Challenge by mentor Louis Walsh after he changed his mind.

Now they could be heading to the live finals from next weekend.

This Saturday and Sunday night we'll see if Louis has picked them for the live shows and he's hinted that they'll make great TV.

“I think they’re an act people will love to hate," Louis said.


Denying the couple were a joke act, Louis added in a chat with the Daily Star newspaper: "They put a lot of work into it, even with the silly outfits."

And he teased of his final three groups: “Ultimately I think I have got three acts who are going to have very good careers off the back of this show.”

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.

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

Alongside Ottavio and Bradley, 5AM, Skarl3t, Four of Diamonds, The Brooks, and Tom and Laura are through to judges' houses, together with wild card Yes Lad.

Find out who gets through to the LIVE SHOWS during the judges' houses when The X Factor continues on ITV Saturday 1st October at 8pm and Sunday 2nd October at 7.30pm.
