X Factor's Four Of Diamonds were actually put together by the show


It's been revealed that X Factor girl group Four of Diamonds were put together by the show.

The four piece are made up of Caroline, Sophia, Yasmin and Lauren and Nicole Scherzinger named them as her favourite girl-group in the competition at their first audition.

Four Of Diamonds made it through to Louis' Judge’s House in Ibiza this year and despite impressing him with their version of Lordes' 'Royals', didn't make the original final twelve.

But last night it was confirmed that they'd be back after Brooks Way made an unplanned exit.

Now the truth behind the group has been revealed: The girls were formed by show bosses.

DigitalSpy reports that the four piece originally auditioned as soloists before taking part in a 'workshop' to form a group.

A source told the website: "Applications for the series can and do take place up until the very last days of judge auditions but anyone entering last minute goes through the same process as all other acts.

"Four of Diamonds did all apply for the show as soloists but didn't make it past the first stage. They were then invited to take part in a workshop to form a group, the group then had to apply again to enter the show."

Four of Diamonds weren't the only group put together by the judges this year.

A boy band was also formed, which included Ryan Lawrie, but they were given a no at Six Chair Challenge.

However Ryan made a comeback at judges' houses as a soloist via the wild card twist, before making the live shows in the Boys category.

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