Four of Diamonds join X Factor house as they RETURN to the competition


Four Of Diamonds are on The X Factor 2016 again and are already settling into the show's house.

Following the news that Brooks Way had left the show, X Factor tonight announced that girl-group Four Of Diamonds would re-join the competition.

Four Of Diamonds made it through to Louis' Judge’s House in Ibiza this year and not only impressed him with their version of Lordes' 'Royals' but Nicole also named them as her favourite girl-group in the competition at their first audition.

Speaking about his decision to bring them back, Louis Walsh, who is mentoring the groups, said this evening: "I was really impressed with the girls at Judges’ Houses but only had three spots to fill for the Live Shows.

"At the time a lot of viewers were disappointed that I didn’t put the girls through, now that a place has opened up in my category, I’ve listened to the fans and am delighted to be bringing the girls back.

"They're a great girl group and I'm hoping will take me all the way to the final."

In a video message posted on Twitter, Four of Diamonds said: "We are so unbelievably excited and we can't even wait to make you all proud."

"We're chilling on The X Factor house, getting to know everyone again," they added.

Speaking about their return to the show in a statement, Four Of Diamonds said: "We are so excited to be back on The X Factor.

"We’re really looking forward to performing live, working hard and showing everyone what we’re made of."

Each of the girls hails from a different part of the UK; Caroline (19) is from London and has been studying Commercial Music at University; Lauren (21) is from Surrey and has been working part-time in a supermarket and teaching dance; Yasmin (17) from Manchester has been studying a music course and Sophia (19) from Birmingham has been studying Bio-Veterinary Science at University.

The girls had only been performing together as a group for a few weeks before they initially auditioned for the judges. They describe their sound as a modern twist on the classic sixties style.

The X Factor 2016 airs live this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
