X Factor's Bradley and Ottavio insist they're taking the show seriously

OTTAVIO AND BRADLEY

Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro have insisted they're taking X Factor seriously.

The pair - now known as Bratavio - will be seen singing for a place on the live shows tonight.

before singing for mentor Louis Walsh, they say: "We've known each other for free years now, we started to mess about in shopping centres, singing through it.

"Then thought about and our voices do actually sound good together."

Reflecting on their 'chicken row', the guys continue: "On the day of the room auditions, there was a little bit of tension that day.

"Some people might question, are we taking it seriously but actually we're serious about this, we've got something different to bring.

"We're here to say, you know what, this is it, this is the next generation of the music industry."

"Dear God," reacts Dermot O'Leary.

"We are different but we are fighting for our dream just like any other person in this competition," Bratavio add.

Voting to keep Louis wanting more, Bradley and Ottavio sing Candyman for their mentor and his guests Fleur East and Alesha Dixon.

And they cause a bit of chaos, ending the routine in the pool.

Will the antics persuade Louis to make them one of his final three?

Find out who gets through to the LIVE SHOWS during the judges' houses tonight on ITV.

The X Factor continues this evening, Saturday 1st October at 8pm and Sunday 2nd October at 7.30pm.
