You won’t believe where Ottavio from The X Factor is working now…

But he's still 'following his dream'

If you cast your minds back to last year's X Factor, you might remember Ottavio Columbro and Bradley.


'Bratavio', as they were also known, were best loved for their flamboyant outfits, their flawless makeup and a blazing argument they had during their first audition about an uncooked chicken.

It was iconic (TV gold, in fact), and they cemented themselves a place in the X Factor hall of fame, despite only making it to the first live show.

However, Ottavio is now living a slightly less glamorous life than this time last year, when he was hanging out with Louis Walsh and his X Factor co-stars.

Yup. Apparently he's taken a job in Tesco – although he's adamant that he's still "following his dream."

He tweeted a photo in his Tesco uniform, with the caption "working days", and when one Twitter user responded "OMG have u got a job now!!" he responded: "Yes, I love earning money and following my dream at the same time."

Well, at least he's probably got loads of club card points.

Sadly, it sounds like Bratavio are no longer a duo, although we might start a petition to get them back together. #Bringbackbratavio anyone?!
