Former X Factor contestant Bradley Hunt has opened up about his time on the live shows last year.
Bradley appeared in 2016’s series alongside pal Ottavio as part of duo Bratavio.
However they were the very first act to leave in the live shows after polling the fewest votes.
A year on and Bradley is putting his time on The X Factor behind him and going solo with his own single, Side Dish.
Chatting to OK! Magazine about his experience on X Factor, Bradley took aim at his mentor Louis and branded the Irish music mogul ‘the worst’ of the judges.
He explained: “I’d say Louis Walsh is the worst of them all – Simon is nicer than him. Louis is so catty and b***hy, God yeah.
Bradley continued: “[Our relationship] was more like banter, but I don’t think he liked us, I don’t know why he didn’t.
“When we got through he was like, ‘I didn’t even want to put you through’ and Ottavio was like, ‘Well you shouldn’t have!’”
And according to Bradley, Louis never once contacted them after their elimination.
“Literally, nothing ever again. On results night he said, ‘I think you two are going tonight by the way’ and we were like, ‘Oh thanks!’ and then we did,” he said.
While Bratavio didn’t last long, their fellow Groups category contestants 5 After Midnight went on to make the final with Louis’ help and have since been signed by Simon Cowell’s Syco record label.
