The 7 weirdest X Factor band names ever, from Bun 'nd Cheese to 2 Shoes

The X Factor is not just about finding great voices, it also gives the Great British public a stab at getting their mugs on telly. And while many grab their opportunity with both hands by being funny or cute or, y'know, talented, others prefer to jump to the head of the queue by calling themselves something ridiculous.

Indeed, it was iconic pop-art pioneer Andy Warhol who once said everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. However, he never mentioned having to change our names to a foodstuff to do it...

Scoop up some rejected singers from The Voice UK, gather some rejected props from The Voice UK and assemble some judges not good enough to be rejected from The Voice UK. Then put it on BBC One.

Spread all over last Saturday night like tar, Frank Sinatra: Our Way featured seven 'talented but unknown music acts from across the UK' who were competing to win a slot to perform at the singer's centenary concert later this year.

Presented by Alexander Armstrong and Rochelle Humes, who were both doing the best with what scraps they had, we were confronted with a judging panel that comprised of Rufus Hound, Mica Paris, Dave Stewart and Leo Green. And they had absolutely no sway at all. »
