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 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.
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.

The duo claimed following their elimination that Louis Walsh told them they would be going home after they ended up in the Bottom 3 and they swore they would not remain in contact with him. No strangers to reality television, previous appearances by the duo have included Judge Rinder and Coach Trip. They also expressed a desire to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.
In September 2017, Bradley Hunt released his debut solo single "Side Dish".
- Ottavio previously auditioned for the show in 2012 and made it to bootcamp where he performed in a group alongside eventual finalist Rylan Clark. He was eliminated at this stage of the competition.
