First look at The X Factor live tour as contestants hit rehearsals

Here's your first look at The X Factor 2018 tour as the contestants reunite following last year's live show.

The X Factor tour line up was confirmed in the live semi-finals in 2017, with the top six acts taking part.

They are Simon Cowell's Groups Rak-Su and The CutKelvins and Sharon Osbourne's final Girl Grace Davies.

Plus Louis Walsh's top boy Lloyd Macey and Nicole Scherzinger's Overs Kevin Davy White and Matt Linnen.

They're joined by a seventh wild card act from the other finalists, Sean and Conor, who won a public vote to join the line up.

Those on the XFactor tour line up will perform a few group numbers as well as covers and original songs from the X Factor live shows last year.

The 2018 arena tour will visit all the major cities across the nation with contestants performing classic songs and viewer's favourites from this year's series.

But this time, for the first time ever the audience will choose their own winner after each and every night of performances.

The X Factor digital host, Becca Dudley, will be on the road with the contestants and presenting the tour competition each night.

And at the end of each show, the audience will become the judges – and choose their winner.

The X Factor live tour begins this Friday, in Belfast on the 16th of February, 2018.

The tour continues across to Dublin, Ireland before returning to the UK, stopping off at Cardiff, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, London (Wembley Arena), Birmingham, Bournemouth, Liverpool, Glasgow, Sheffield and Leeds.

The 2018 X Factor live tour will conclude at Brighton on March 4.
