Naughty teenager Bradley Johnson has said he hopes to use The X Factor live shows to "prove himself" to viewers. The 16-year-old, who has been expelled from three schools, said that having the confidence of mentor Tulisa meant so much to him.
But Bradley almost never made it this far, after he was sent home at bootcamp despite an impressive first audition. Given a second chance, Bradley joined new group Nu vibe along with Richard Milford, Ashford Campbell, Stefan Romer and Jordan Higo.
The five-piece are now the favourite of the four final groups to win after Tulisa selected them earlier this month for the live shows, which start on Sunday.
Bradley told the The Ormskirk Advertiser: “It means so much because three years ago I used to be naughty.
“I had nothing going for me and I just want to prove I can make something of myself.”
Bradley and his Nu Vibe pals were looking stylish when we met them at The X Factor press conference on Tuesday, and we can't wait to see what they'll be doing for the live shows this weekend.
