X Factor duo Reggie and Bollie met the legendary Lionel Richie this week.

They said on their Facebook page: “We are Laughing now because Lionel Richie just told us we are great performers. Wow.”

Reggie, 31, and Bollie, 29, from Eynesbury in St Neots said last week they appreciated all the support they had received from the public.

“Thank you to all our friends/fans for voting for us to continue our X-Factor journey. We are sincerely grateful to you all and we will continue to work harder.”

Bollie, whose real name is Ishmael Hamid has been living in St Neots for two years with his wife Mira, stepson Jamir and three month old baby Amayah. He works at the Wyboston Lakes Hotel and is currently on leave to allow him to appear on the show.
