According to reports, the band’s mentor Louis Walsh could be about to axe a couple of the singers and he even hinted at the possible change during the weekend’s live shows.

When the 8-piece band were criticised by the other judges, Louis replied: “I wouldn't have eight people - I never wanted eight people in the band.

"So I'll have to talk to the boys. I wouldn't change anybody but I'll talk to the boys and see if they want to do anything."

Last week, Stereo Kicks narrowly avoided being booted off the show, when they landed themselves in the sing-off against Chloe Jasmine.

Luckily for them, the panel decided to ditch the jazz singer, so this weekend they’ll be joining the other remaining contestants for movie week.

The band were hit by further controversy on Tuesday, when it was revealed that singer Jake Sims’ naked selfie - taken while he was underage - had been leaked online.

The snap was originally posted by Jake years before ‘X Factor’, however following his success in the competition, a handful of Twitter users threatened to share the snap if he didn’t follow them.

An ‘X Factor’ source told The Mirror: “Jake posted the picture several years ago and deleted it shortly afterwards.

"He is mortified that this has now come to light - he is totally committed to making a success of the Stereo Kicks and doesn't want anything to distract from that."
