X Factor 2016: 5 After Midnight to SPLIT? They speak out over the rumours


X Factor boy band 5 After Midnight have spoken out about split rumours.

There were claims the trio were on the verge of parting ways after arguments behind the scenes.

But the guys - Kieran Alleyne, Nathan Lewis and Jordan Lee - have insisted they're sticking together.

Jordan assured fans this week: "We're going to have arguments no matter what. If you have a child, you're going to have an argument with that child, but it's because you love them! It's the same with housemates and workmates."

Kieran added: "It's never anything serious. It's just petty, like brothers."

And he concluded: "We're not going to split up. We entered this competition together, we'll go out of it together."

Nathan joked: "We're not even at the end of this show yet, and it's like alright guys, it's been a good run - 20 weeks!"

Meanwhile the group had some other rumours to rubbish this week.

5 After Midnight bandmate Jordan denied there was any romance between him and latest eliminee Gifty Louise.

"Apparently, in this industry, boys and girls can’t be friends!" he said. "Me and Gifty share a good friendship and that’s all it is. We clash a lot in a good way.

"Because we’re always together, we get photographed together a lot and people perceive it as something that it’s not."

The X Factor 2016 is back next Saturday and Sunday on ITV from 8PM.

It's a Girl band v Boy Band theme and there will be a guest performance from Robbie Williams.
