Who are Stereo Kicks: the new X Factor Boyband?


Click on a member of Stereo Kicks to find out more

There’s a brand-new boyband taking The X Factor by storm – it’s Stereo Kicks!

James, Reece, Tom, Casey, Jake, Charlie, Barclay and Chris (yes, there’s eight of them!) were formed by show bosses after each failed to make it through Boot Camp as solo artists.

Simon and the judges saw potential in the boys though and formed this gigantic super-group, which Louis sent straight through to the Live Shows!

We love Stereo Kicks here at Fun Kids and think the eight-some (is that a thing?) are definitely one of the favourites to win the competition!
