The X Factor's Union J have insisted they won't be fighting for their survival this week.

The four-piece boyband, who were in the sing-off last week with fellow group District 3, are the last act standing in Louis Walsh's category.

Josh Cuthbert said: "Fingers crossed. We're coming back fighting this week. We've put so much more work into this week already, but fingers crossed we won't be in the bottom two.

"It's now getting to the business end of the competition where it's really hotting up and the talent is amazing, so we've got to try and get on the same page as Jahmene (Douglas), Ella (Henderson), James (Arthur) and Rylan (Clark)."

His bandmate Jaymi Hensley reckoned the pressure makes the group knuckle down even more.

"Every time we've had a knock back like not get through bootcamp or being in the bottom two the first week, we've come back the following week fighting. We work well under pressure. It makes it real how much this means to us, so we're really excited for this weekend," he said.

George Shelley added: "We were thinking that because there were two boybands, the votes were split between the two, so now that there's only one, maybe more people will vote for us."

Jamie Hamblett revealed the band's dream duets include: "Chris Maloney - I'm joking! Justin Bieber, Beyonce, we're open to anything!"
