Olly's bandaged hand is the second setback for the show's favourite. Last week he picked up a throat infection and had to have an antibiotic jab.
An X Factor spokesperson said: “He has a cast on his hand to prevent further damage, but will be performing as usual at the weekend. He's confident it won't affect his hip-swiveling moves.”

Mother-of-two Simone Iorizzo , owner of family run Mama Dells caf� in Newland Street, is offering the Olly Breakfast.
She said: “Olly worked opposite and was always in here for a full monty breakfast or his sandwich so we have renamed the breakfast in his honour.
“We're massive Olly fans. Everyone in the town is behind him. It's a great atmosphere.”
