The X Factor UK 2017 Anthony Russell Auditions Full Clip S14E01
Who is Anthony Russell?
Anthony Russell is a 27-year-old from Liverpool who tried his luck at this year’s X Factor auditions.
He had previously tried out for the show ten years ago, and after getting through the first round but failing to progress, he vowed to return.
Since that time, he has become a father.
In April 2017, he lost his job, and decided to use the opportunity to focus on his music career.
Why was Anthony kicked off the show?
During the bootcamp phase of the show, Anthony was confronted for his erratic behaviour by worried show bosses.
After admitting to taking drugs during his auditions, he was asked to leave the show and get clean.
An X Factor source told us: “Anthony has been going through some personal issues for some time – as he sang about at his audition. Those issues were still affecting him. So everyone has urged him to concentrate on getting himself better right now.
“Production are all very fond of him and think he has really potential so have told him, if he straightens himself out, they would love him to have another shot at X Factor next year. That is the perfect incentive for him to get his life back on track.
” Everyone hopes he will come back next year healthier.”
