X Factor group Only The Young couldn't look any cooler as they rocked up to Radio 1 earlier today.

Since they shot to stardom on The X Factor last year, the band have made a name for themselves thanks to their quirky persona and signature style, and today as they arrived for their radio appearance in the capital, Mikey Bromley, Betsy-Blue English, Parisa Tarjomani and Charlie George made one seriously slick four-piece.

While the boys looked effortlessly cool, Charlie with his shades and lightwash denim jacket and Mikey with his fedora and tousled locks, the girls oozed all the edgy vibes in stripes and leather.

Betsy (who is currently dating Stereo Kicks star Casey Johnson) flashed her enviable tum in a white crop and striped co-ords, styling her blonde tresses with braids. Parisa, meanwhile, teamed her leather trousers with a cute metallic jacket and lace up boots.

Super stylish and oh-so-cool.

Only The Young joined Scott Mills and Chris Stark for a game of Innuendo Bingo and were in high spirits despite recent reports revealing their debut single has been delayed.

Earlier this week, the band admitted the released date for their new track 'I Do' has been put back a week due to the migrant crisis in Calais.

Thanks to the huge delays on cross-Channel services, Only The Young revealed: "Due to all the stuff happening in Calais our CDs actually got stuck. Our management called us at ridiculous o'clock at night and they were like 'so guys the song was supposed to come out in two days but it's been put back'."

Only The Young first revealed they were set to release their very first single back in June. Their music release comes nearly a year after fans first came across the group when they auditioned for The X Factor.

Chatting to Scott and Chris on Radio 1, Only The Young admitted they're going to find it strange watching the talent competition and not being on it this time round.

"It's going to be a weird one," Parisa said. "We've spent like a whole year watching ourselves back and being really involved in The X Factor and then we're out in the real world and it'll be those people in the bubble. It's going to be strange."

A fan of the show's new judges Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw, the group insisted they'll be tuning in this series, revealing they'd love to go back onto The X Factor to perform.

When Scott said he'd call in a favour with Grimmy and maybe see if they could be his mentors for judges' houses, Only The Young didn't seem so keen.

Knowing first hand what judges' houses entail, they revealed it's not as glamorous as it seems and you don't actually get to stay overseas for very long.

"We went to Bermuda... It was amazing, but it was only for two nights," Parisa said.

Charlie then added: "It was funny because they were like can you guys go and jump in the sea... we were frolicking in the sea for like 5/10 minutes and then they were like right we need to do some more filming, you need to go and get dry."

"They pretended we had loads of fun," Betsy joked.
