X Factor UK: The Risk will NOT be coming back!

The Risk with Ashford Campbell

The risk singer Charlie Healey has confirmed the the group will not be returning to the show following their elimination on Sunday. The boys, who were a shock exit during the weekend's double elimination twist, had been rumoured to replace axed contestant Frankie Cocozza.

The teenager was booted out of the show yesterday for breaking the competition rules, igniting speculation about a possibly return for either The Risk or Johnny Robinson.

But writing to thousands of disappointed fans on Twitter, Charlie said: "Although we would love to, the risk are not coming back on x factor. Sorry everyone. 🙂 xxx [sic]"

We reckon it's good news as we're not entirely sure what the point would be, other than prolonging their inevitable elimination again in a week or two.

The X Factor is set to make an announcement regarding the show later today.
