X Factor 2016: Four Of Diamonds 'in tears' over mean tweets


X Factor 2016 girl group Four Of Diamonds have admitted to being hurt by mean tweets.

The girl group were in the bottom two again on Sunday night but had support from judges Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne.

The trio voted to save them over Gifty Louise after Four Of Diamonds found themselves in the sing-off for a second time in as many weeks.

Following the controversial exit of Gifty, Four Of Diamonds found themselves the target of online trolls.


The four piece were attacked by some viewers and nicknamed 'Lidl Mix' by fans of former X Factor champs Little Mix.

"It was hurtful to read them," the group confessed candidly this week. "We definitely have our days where there are tears, but we are all so close we pick each other up."

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the girls continued: "We were shocked that Gifty went, but it's the nature of the contest that someone had to go that night.

"We all share the same dream so we have decided to use any negativity as motivation to do better and get fans on our side."

The four piece have been in the sing-off for the last two weeks and will need to bounce back this weekend.

Saara Aalto proved its possible and Four Of Diamonds will be hoping that Wilson Phillips' Hold On will be the song to boost them out of the danger zone.

"We have the opportunity to switch it up and to show our individuality and the fact that we can do this differently," they said. "We've found our feet, now it's time for us to make an impact."

Saying we will be seeing the "real Four Of Diamonds" on Saturday, the girls teased: "It's going to be different, you're not going to expect it."

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.
