How did you find your experience appearing on The X Factor?

Nathan – Unlike anything I’ve ever done before, it was intense work but immensely fun!
Jordan – It was a crazy but amazing experience – it made me especially happy knowing that I was making my family proud
What was the best piece of advice given to you whilst doing the show/What have you learnt?
Kieran – Be true to who you are! That was the best piece of advice given to me because so many people in the world will try to be something they’re not.
Nathan – I think the best advice was to always “be yourself” and to “have fun” with every performance.
Jordan – I’ve learnt that not everyone can do everything in a group; you all have different qualities about you that come together and make the group what it is.
Do you miss your mentor/have you been in touch with them?
Kieran – Yes I had so many jokes with Louis I miss that, I’ve spoken to him a few times over the holiday 🙂
Nathan – Yeah I definitely miss Louis, there’s no one like him – we’ve been messaging here and there for sure.
Jordan – Yeah 100 percent miss my mentor! I have been in touch with him, he told me he’s living the life in Dublin!!
