According to sources, six previous X Factor contestants have gotten as far as the judges houses in this year’s competition, with last year’s Rough Copy being among the acts granted with a second chance.

What do you mean you don’t remember Rough Copy?

They were the three RnB guys from south London who got through to the judges’ houses, but were sadly ejected after Nigeria-born Kazeem Ajobe failed to provide a visa, meaning they couldn’t go to Louis Walsh’s rented house in Las Vegas.

Yesss, them.

Anyway, they seem to have got their travelling legalities in order as they’ve made it through and are currently battling for a place in the live finals.

Other repeat auditionees come in the form of Terry Winstanley, Melanie McCabe, Jade Richards, Dolly Rockers and Amy Mottram.

Sorry for the spoiler by the way.

Are you glad to see the return of these acts? Or should the has-beens make room for the new wannabes in town?
