X Factor Boyband GMD3 To Become 'District 3' After Virus Jibes

The X Factor boy-band GMD3 have been forced into a rebranding campaign after Sharon Osbourne joked that their name sounded like a virus. Though the former judge is spot on, it's also just a terrible name.

Nevertheless, the group's curiously named singer Dan Ferrari-Lane and band-mates Greg and Nicky look set to become 'District 3 after asking fans for their suggestions. Though 'District 3' sounds like a quarantine pen for those who've contracted GMD3, it's probably slightly better, however, it's not a done deal just yet. Mentor Louis Walsh told The Sun, "GMD3's new name? I think it will be District 3. District 3 we are hoping to clear. But it's not 100 per cent." Singer Nicky added: "There were quite a few good suggestions - and loads of joke ones: Greg and His Sausage Rolls. Threesome, Threeway. Louis' Little Boys." Creepy. The group will perform live for the first time tomorrow after impressing in the Boot Camp and Judges' Houses stages. "They're great guys. They've already proved themselves vocally, and I think they are going to be great," added Louis.

GMD3, District 3, or Louis' Little Boys - either way, the group are still the 20/1 outsiders with the bookies to win this year's show. Songstress Ella Henderson is as short as 5/4 with some bookmakers, meaning she's just about nailed on.
