PICTURES! The X Factor 2016 live tour wraps up at Manchester

Here are all the pictures from tonight's FINAL day of The X Factor 2016 live tour.

The contestants on the line up wrapped up a month on the road this evening in Manchester having started this year's arenas shows back in February in Aberdeen.

Some 40,000 X Factor fans packed out the Manchester Arena over two shows today to watch the eight acts on the bill.

Those performing were Louisa Johnson, Lauren Murray, Anton Stephans, Reggie n Bollie, 4th Impact, Che Chesterman and Mason Noise together with wild card Seann Miley Moore.

And it was a bit of a tearful but triumphant close for the group who have played to hundreds of thousands of fans over more than 20 dates, including London's iconic O2 Arena and gigs in Ireland.

The finalists came together at the end of the show in Manchester this evening for one last group number before dancing off stage for the last time.

The end of The X Factor tour generally marks the end of the contestants' direct time with the show, especially as a brand new series has already having begun filming its first auditions.

That said we'll no doubt be seeing many of last year's finalists again in the not too distant future: Winner Louisa has of course been signed as well as runners up Reggie n Bollie.
