The Saturdays have claimed that groups on The X Factor often struggle because they do not have the chance to get to know each other properly.
The ‘Ego’ five-piece insisted that it takes time for band members to work together and to develop their act.
“A lot of those bands are put together just to go on the show. But you need to gel and blend – and that’s not something you can do over a ten-week show,” Rochelle Wiseman told the Daily Mail.
“It’s a shame that a lot of people think that to be famous you have to go on The X Factor.”
Singer Mollie King auditioned for the ITV1 show with previous group Fallen Angelz in 2007.
The group recently claimed that they were disappointed that fewer girlbands had been successful on The X Factor.
