It's X Factor live show today! This evening will see the remaining contestants take on some dancefloor fillers.

Based on previous years, we don't really have high hopes for tonight's performances, but we're sure they'll make entertaining telly whatever happens.

Up early and ready for rehearsals earlier today were Union J, who have quickly amassed a huge online following thanks to Twitter.

Josh tweeted their 300,000 fans: "Morning everyone 😀 Saturday has come around already!! I get so nervous on Saturdays!! Josh x"

And Rylan Clark was already preparing some more attention seeking amature dramatics if he manages to avoid elimination once again.

The 23-year-old asked his fans: "So if I get through this week.... What should I do? Made a promise last week.... And I kept it 😉 x"

But it's not all positive, with Kye Sones and Jade Ellis ill!

Kye told his tweeters: "Full of cold and its show day! 🙁

A show insider told the Daily Star today: “It’s become the sick factor backstage. They are dropping like flies.

“We are having to keep a very close eye on all of them before this virus spreads.

“They will see a doctor before we go live, everyone’s keeping their fingers crossed that they can perform tonight.”

Meanwhile eliminated contestants Melanie Masson and Carolynne Poole were preparing to cheer on the stars from the comfort of their sofas this weekend.

Melanie tweeted: "Good luck to my X Factor family for tonight's show. I'm rooting for you and I love you all xxxx"

And Carolynne added: "Good luck to all the X Factor contestants tonight... Sending ya all lots of positive vibes! #teamGB"
