District 3 have denied reports that they were at loggerheads with union J during their time on the X Factor
Former contestant Kye Sones suggested that there was a lot of rivalry between the two boy bands throughout the series and it would be easy to see why, after all the judges did nothing but pit them against one another week after week.
However, the trio insisted that they are best of friends with their fellow competitors and told Caroline Flack:
“There has been this whole thing in the press about us being rivals, to be honest with you we have made the best friendship and we wish the boys all the luck in the world.”
The lads added:
“They are amazingly talented guys and they are such good friends of ours. They deserved it, they did deserve it.”
District 3 were eliminated from the ITV show last night, after they faced a head to head sing off with their fellow Team Louis group.
Walsh refused to choose between his acts, so the other panellists made the decision for him and with Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger backing Union J, D3 were on their way home.
They took the news well and speaking on the Xtra Factor insisted they were grateful to be given the chance to appear on The X Factor.
“We just had a wicked time, we are just grateful. More than anything we are appreciative.”
He admitted that they had an idea they would be in danger last night, so Dermot O’Leary’s revelation didn’t come as too much of a shock to them.
They were the bookies favourite to go and Gary didn’t help on Saturday when he claimed that UJ had an ‘edge’ over them.
The hunk added:
“We sort of saw it coming a little bit but we’ve had the most amazing time and although it’s the ending of the competition for us, it’s just the start for us as a band.
We got on the tour so that is going to be fun.”
