X Factor's 4 Of Diamonds hit back at fix claims over being put together by the show


X Factor's Four Of Diamonds have spoke out about 'fix' controversy after being put together by the show.

Speaking out this week about just what happened, the girls suggested far from being a fix, it actually meant they had more auditions to get through.

Caroline explained: "We've been a band for 16 weeks now. We auditioned as soloists, but didn't get past the producers.

"We went to an audition workshop to be part of a girlband, then continued the same process as everyone else. If anything, we had an extra stage to go through."

4 Of Diamonds were originally sent home at judges' houses earlier this year, missing out on the live shows.

But they returned to the competition last weekend after another of Louis Walsh's groups was forced to withdraw from the competition.

The girls confessed: "We felt bad at first, but [Brooks Way] wished us luck.

"What happened was unfortunate as we got on really well with them. It's not the best way to come in, but we have to do the best we can."

So how awkward was it coming face to face with mentor Louis after he originally sent them home?

The group revealed: "One of the first things he said was, 'Are you mad at me? Have you forgiven me yet?' At the end of the day, it's a hard decision for him to make."


They added: "Louis is a joker. We get along so well with him. He really cares about us."

The X Factor 2016 continues LIVE this Saturday from 8PM on ITV with Divas week.

Then on Sunday night at 8PM the first results will see another act leave, as well as performances from Shawn Mendes and John Legend.
