Paul Akister is rooting for Stereo Kicks
Paul Akister has confessed he is rooting for Stereo Kicks to do well on 'The X Factor' after he formed a close friendship with the boy band's Barclay Beales
Paul Akister hopes Stereo Kicks will do well on 'The X Factor'.
The wannabe popstar - who was voted off the ITV talent show last weekend - has confessed he's grown close to the boy band's Barclay Beales and is rooting for them to go far in the competition.
Quizzed on who he was going to miss the most, Paul exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Barclay out of the eight piece, Stereo Kicks. It has just really been Barclay, the closest one, because he's like me so we've been getting along and it will be nice to see him out of this competition."
The 25-year-old hopeful went on to confess that he admires the group as he doesn't think he would've been able to cope if he'd been put together with seven contestants he'd never met before and asked to perform.
He said: "They're really nice and they're ... It's weird to see them all get along well because for me, if I was in a group I'd be quite uptight all the time but they're really cool together and I want them to do well because it must be hard to be shoved into a group. I couldn't do it."
Meanwhile, Paul has rubbished claims his quiet personality could prevent him from pursuing a career in the music industry.
He added: "100 per cent not true. You don't have to be flying about to be a credible artist. You don't have to be doing cartwheels onto the stage and jumping around in interviews. I think it's quite good to see different people."
