The X Factor 2012 will have a Best of British theme next week, it has been revealed.

Ed Sheeran will be performing his latest single, while former X Factor groups One Direction and last year's winners Little Mix will also be singing.

The remaining seven acts meanwhile will be taking on classic tracks by British singing legends.

Similar themes in previous years have seen tracks including those by Queen and George Michael being belted out.

But given how poorly the judges' followed last week's Number Ones theme, we wouldn't be shocked to see performances of tracks by the likes of Taylor Swift and Beyonce again.

After avoiding the bottom two, Ditrict3 teased their performance for British week.

Speaking to Xtra Factor hosts Olly Murs and Caroline after the main show, the trio revealed: "We really want to show our musicianship next week, so hopefully we can strip it back."

The X Factor 2012 live shows continue next weekend on ITV1.
