Steps fans are pleased to that the band are back in our lives in time for Christmas, but the group have been denied the chance to perform on The X Factor - a move that would have been instrumental in boosting their comeback.

The group, who previously appeared on the ITV2 sister show Xtra Factor, admitted they were keen to sing on one of the live results shows... but X Factor bosses didn't share their enthusiasm.

Faye Tozer told Digital Spy: "Lots of people have said they'd love to have a Steps week. Unfortunately everything was completely booked up - it's just one of those things."

Ian 'H' Watkins then added: "They wouldn't have us!"

Lee Latchford-Evans continued: "It would be good to go on X Factor and perform and have an X Factor week."

Asked on their opinion of contestant Rylan Clark, Claire Richards quipped: "I think he's probably got quite a lot of Steps inside of him!" We agree...

Steps' festive album Light Up the World is out now.
