X Factor Fix Claims As Star Contestant’s True Past Revealed


Woo-woo! X Factor fail alert! Some cheeky sod tried to dazzle the judges on the panel despite the fact he’s already signed a record deal.

Kinda goes against the whole show, don’t you think? Drew Wedlake, from Bristol, you absolute chancer!

Sure, the guy works in his mum and dad’s bed and breakfast but away from the B&B, Drew has a burgeoning online presence – he’s even got a music video!

Check out his performance on last night’s show in the video below:

The 22-year-old performed a typically-stripped back rendition of The White Stripes‘ ‘Seven Nation Army’ before show judges, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh.

Yet it appears Drew has one over the rest of this year’s hopefuls.

In 2015, he reportedly signed to Horous Music after impressing bosses with his EP ‘Get Crazy’ which is available on iTunes.

It was a fact he decided to keep secret from the judges, simply saying:

I don’t really do too much work to be honest. Change the odd lightbulb, play my guitar for the customers when they come in. As soon as four o’clock hits I’m straight out the door to do some busking.

Oh, and write music for a label – come on Drew, lad. Give it a rest.

You can watch the X Factor tonight on ITV at 8pm.
