X Factor 2011: The Risk's Marlon replaced by The Keys' Charlie at judges houses?

The Risk X Factor

It seems it all kicked off at Tulisa's judges' houses in Greece earlier this month, with the new X Factor judge apparently kicking out Marlon McKenzie from group The Risk, and splitting up The Keys by moving lead singer Charlie to replace Marlon!

In scenes to air this weekend, Tulisa says "nothing like this has been done before," as she creates a new group with just a week to go until the live shows.

It's bad news for Marlon, who has previously made the bootcamp stage in 2005 and 2008, as well as reaching Dannii Minogue's judges' houses last year.

Put into a new group formed by the judges at bootcamp, this could've finally been Marlon's chance to make the live show, but Tulisa has had other ideas.


The feisty N-Dubz judge, who has made no secret of her desire to win with the groups for the first time, decided to switch up the groups.

According to Unrealitytv, lead singer of organic group The Keys, Charlie Healy, has joined The Risk, at the expense of Marlon McKenzie. The reason behind the move - and what we expect to be very teary scenes - will be shown this weekend.

We'll find out this Sunday if it was a good move for the boys, and whether they've made it to the X Factor final 16.

Other groups competing for a spot in the live shows include Girl V Boy, 2 Shoes, Estrella and Nu Vibe.
