Four of Diamonds to replace Brooks Way on 'The X Factor'
Four of Diamonds will replace Brooks Way on 'The X Factor'.
The girl group are set to take their place at the live shows on Saturday (15.10.16) after the sibling duo were disqualified from the singing competition when it emerged over the weekend that Josh Brooks, 17, had allegedly assaulted his former girlfriend.
Louis Walsh - who mentored the groups and originally sent Four of Diamonds home during Judges' Houses - said he was "really impressed" by the girls and is "delighted" to be bringing them back to the show.
In a statement, the 64-year-old entertainment manager said: "I was really impressed with the girls at Judges' Houses but only had three spots to fill for the live shows. At the time, a lot of viewers were disappointed that I didn't put the girls through. Now that a place has opened up in my category, I've listened to the fans, and am delighted to be bringing the girls back. They're a great girl group and I'm hoping will take me all the way to the final."
And the girls - comprised of Caroline, 19, Lauren, 21, Yasmin, 17, and Sophia, 19 - couldn't quite believe their luck, saying they were "so excited" to have a place on the live show.
They said: "We are so excited to be back on The X Factor. We're really looking forward to performing live, working hard and showing everyone what we're made of."
The news comes after it was reported that 'X Factor' bosses had decided to axe the twins - completed by Kyle Brooks - over the assault allegations.
A source said at the time: "The boys were in bits during the 90-minute meeting and completely broke down in tears.
"Show bosses went really hard saying they can't tolerate that behaviour and they're not welcome back at the studios."
'X Factor' continues Saturday October 15 on ITV at 8pm.
