X Factor finalists Only The Young looked more than happy to be at rehearsals today after narrowly avoiding leaving the competition.

Last night, Jake Quickenden was voted off The X Factor after the judges decided to save Only The Young in the sing-off.

Now making the most of every moment they have left in the competition, Only The Young seemed in high spirits as they headed back to the studio earlier today.

Forgetting about any negatives from the weekend, the group - made up of Charlie, 17, Parisa, 20, Mikey, 19, and 18-year-old Betsy - were all smiles as they larked about on their way to rehearsals.

Playing up for the cameras, Charlie picked up Betsy, while Parisa flashed a grin as Mikey made the famous X Factor 'X' symbol with his arms.

Even though they couldn't look any happier in these latest pictures, Sunday night proved to be a different story for the band.

Finding themselves in the bottom two, Only The Young faced Jake in the sing-off as they battled for their place in next week's fourth live show.

Giving it their all with a rendition of Abba's 'The Winner Takes It All', Only The Young were eventually saved from elimination after Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini decided that they were the act who had the most potential going forward.

Their close call came after the band took to the stage with their performance of 'Boom Clap' on Saturday night's 'Movie Night' themed show.

Receiving mixed reviews from the judges, Simon said he thought the "lead vocals were out of tune", but Mel B told Only The Young she thought they had done a great job.

Now through to next week, the group will join the remaining 10 finalists to take on the show's 'Fright Night' theme for Saturday night's Halloween special.

The X Factor continues this Saturday and Sunday at 8pm on ITV.
