One half of X Factor duo Bratavio 'to enter the Big Brother house'


One half of 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 Bradley could soon be back on our TVs if recent reports are to be believed.

The Sun newspaper reports that he has signed up to enter the house this summer.


“Bradley’s been telling anyone who’ll listen that he’s been signed up this series of Big Brother," a source said. “But when people have asked him about Ottavio he’s tried to change the subject and said it’s got nothing to do with him.

“Bradley wants to get back into the limelight and would do anything to get people talking about him again.”

Speaking after leaving The X Factor last year, both Bradley and Ottavio 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."

Other X Factor acts who have appeared in Big Brother include Rylan Clark, Jedward, Samantha Kay, Katie Waissel, Ryan Ruckledge, Stevi Ritchie, Chloe Jasmine and Chloe Khan.
