Placement 12/12

Bratavio, formerly Bradley and Ottavio, are a duo consisting of Bradley Hunt and Ottavio Columbro who competed in Series 13 of The X Factor as part of the Groups category mentored by Louis Walsh. They were eliminated in Week 1 of the live shows, thus finishing in 11th place, later 12th place due to sibling duo Brooks Way being repaced by Four of Diamonds.

The X Factor

The duo auditioned separately before Ottavio admitted to the judges that they had a falling out over some uncooked chicken, as Bradley watched on in the waiting area. They were sent away and later made amends before auditioning together where they were successfully let through to bootcamp.

They made it all the way to Louis Walsh's Judges Houses in Ibiza and ended up making it through to the live shows.  They revealed on The Xtra Factor that they had shortened their name to Bratavio.

In Week 1 they ended up in the sing off along with Saara Aalto after Freddy Parker was saved via the lifeline vote. They were subsequently eliminated in a majority vote, thus finishing in 11th place due to Brooks Way not performing and later being disqualified from the show.  However, they finished in 12th place overall due to Four of Diamonds later replacing the twins.
