Two of Louis Walsh’s boys, Bradley and Ottavio have rebranded their band name.
The XFACTOR band formed of Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro have rebranded ahead of the live shows next week. The flamboyant pair decided that “Bradley and Ottavio” was just too much of a mouthful so they ditched the brand altogether. Instead, they’ll be known as Bratavio
The dynamic duo has caused a stir on Twitter with fans of the show hurling abuse at Louis Walsh for taking them through to the live shows. A number of angry viewers took to calling Louis and Bratavio homophobic slurs after Louis chose the boys over four other acts including boy band favourites Yes Lad.
Louis Walsh was aided by last year’s runner-up Fleur East and Pride in London’s headliner Alesha Dixon who jointly decided to put in the controversial novelty act.
