Hope ‘detest’ each other

Richard Wilkinson, member of ex X Factor contestants Futureproof has spoken out about their leaving the competition.

First on the agenda was to rubbish the idea put forward by Louis Walsh that girl group Hope had more “long term potential”.

“Hope, if they get put out of the competition, a couple of the members really do detest each other. Because we’ve heard them arguing! There’s no way that if they were put out of the competition that they’d stay together. Raquel would definitely be out chasing a solo career somewhere.”

Asked who he thought was going to win the competition, Richard was strong in his support for Beverley, saying “In my eyes, personality-wise and vocal-wise it should be Beverley that wins.”.

Futureproof go home in all-group showdown

It was a battle of the groups as the two acts formed from the ‘best of the rest’ under 25s - Hope and Futureproof were in the bottom two.

Both Sharon and Louis voted to keep Hope in the competition, with Louis describing Futureproof’s performance as ’sloppy’ and voting to send them home. Dannii opted to vote to keep Futureproof in, explaining that in her opinion they had performed the best over all the live shows.

Simon Cowell looked understandably annoyed at having to choose between two of his own acts, commenting “I’m making this decision based on which act I think has the best long term prospects, so I’m sending home Futureproof”.

The boys were extremely disappointed to be leaving the competition, commenting “we’re shocked, but everyone’s game was high tonight.”
