Greg's X Factor sing off
6:00pm Tuesday 25th September 2012 in Harwich & Manningtree
A TEENAGER from Tendring has made it through to the next stage of tv show the X Factor.
Greg West from Clacton, part of group GMD3, sung his way through bootcamp and into the judges houses.
But it was far from plain sailing for the 18-year-old former Manningtree High School pupil when his boyband was forced into a sing-off with rival band Triple J for the last spot in the competition during Sunday night's show.
Next Saturday, September 29 will see the band compete against six other groups for a spot at the live shows with mentor and judge Louis Walsh.
