After the group's axing, mentor Louis Walsh has chosen another act for his category...
We’ve officially got our replacement for Brooks Way on The X Factor. And it’s… Four Of Diamonds!
Yep. After being knocked out during Judges’ Houses, the girl band – AKA Sophia, Caroline, Yasmin and Lauren – are back with mentor Louis Walsh and ready to smash the Lives.
The news was announced on the show’s official Twitter page last night, with a message reading: ‘We loved them last time and now @FourOfDiamonds_ are back for the #XFactor Live Shows!’
The ladies also Tweeted about their return, telling their followers: ‘We’re SO excited to be back on @TheXFactor ♦️♦️♦️.’
They’re clearly being welcomed back with open arms. Xtra Factor host Matt Edmonson has said: ‘Welcome back @FourOfDiamonds_ ????.’
And fans are just as thrilled. Comments on the girls’ post included: ‘You should have been there in the first place! ?,’ ‘SO glad ur back ! ????,’ and: ‘Well done! Now prove Louis was wrong not to pick you in the first place and go and win the competition!’
Of course, there are a few viewers who were rooting for other acts, notably boy band Yes Lad.
Fans managed to get the hashtag #BringBackYESLAD trending, while others Tweeted: ‘Nooo!!! Should be YES LAD ?,’ and: ‘Why did Louis pick that 4 of diamond group n not yes lad to go back on the show? [sic].’
Hmm. You can’t win ’em all, eh?
Brooks Way were axed from contest following shocking allegations from band member Josh’s girlfriend Amelia Clark, who claims he abused her.
The twins have since broken their silence on the frightening allegations, Tweeting on Sunday: ‘Today, we have had a tough day with a false allegation. Don’t believe everything you read, both Amelia and Josh will be stating the truth.’
On their dismissal, they’ve said: ‘By mutual consent, we feel like it was best to walk away from the show this year. While not everything that has been claimed is true..
‘I would like to apologise to everyone involved. And would like to thank everyone for there ongoing support and love. – Josh.’
They’ve given their blessing to Four Of Diamonds, saying: ‘So so happy for you girls! You deserve it ♡.’
We can’t wait to see what you’ve got, ladies!
