X Factor duo Bratavio in talks to enter the Big Brother house


X Factor's Bratavio have been tipped to join the Big Brother line up this year.

The wacky duo - Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro - became the first act voted off last year's series in the live shows.

But they could soon be back on our TVs if recent reports are to be believed.

The Sun newspaper reports they are in talks to join Big Brother in the summer.

"The boys are real opinion splitters – but ultimately they just want to have a good time," a source told the newspaper. “During their time on The X Factor they had the whole nation talking about them, and that’s what bosses are hoping will happen when Big Brother comes back.

“Bradley and Ottavio are both reality TV pros, being in the house won’t phase them and they are bound to bring plenty of drama and excitement to the show.”

Speaking after leaving The X Factor last year, Bratavio confessed they were hoping to launch a "reality TV career".

Ottavio said: "We'd love to have a reality TV career.

"The next thing I'm going to say is not because we want to become famous, because at the end of the day, we all have dreams, we all want to be successful, and would all like to have some stability in our lives."

He added: "We would love to do Big Brother. And potentially a presenting career because apparently Joe Swash said we'd be good presenting the I'm a Celeb spin-off show.

"[A career like Rylan Clark-Neal's] but he got further than us, the lucky bitch!"

Speaking to DigitalSpy, Bradley added: "I think we'd like to do Big Brother because we've got a lot more to show people and we were judged a lot on The X Factor.

"It gives us a chance to prove ourselves," Ottavio went on. "[The public] don't like us and maybe Big Brother is a chance to get that connection with the public because we haven't connected yet - something's missing."

X Factor acts have become a bit of a staple on Big Brother in recent years.

Indeed, The X Factor now appears to be more like auditions for the next year's Celebrity Big Brother housemate line up.

Rylan Clark, Jedward, Samantha Kay, Katie Waissel, Ryan Ruckledge, Stevi Ritchie, Chloe Jasmine and Chloe Khan are just a handful of previous X Factor acts to join Big Brother.
