The X Factor Over-25 finalists have revealed some surprise choices among their personal picks to win this year’s competition.

Talking to whatsontv.co.uk, 27 year old teacher Danyl tipped Welsh student Lucy as his favourite to take the X Factor crown.

But Jamie ‘Afro’ Archer argued against recent bad press of the twins suggesting that John and Edward could be in with a chance.

The singer said: “I’m going to say something controversial, I’m going to say the twins – just to switch it round.”

“The twins get such a bad rap and they’re two lovely boys.”

He added: “I think the British public will get to know them and in actual fact get to love them in time.”

You can watch the first round of live X Factor shows on ITV1 on Saturday and Sunday at 8pm.
