XFactor 2013 judges' houses locations revealed

X Factor 2013 judges

The X Factor 2013 judges' houses locations have been revealed, with some major jet setting planned for each of the panel.

This year once again money is being thrown at the penultimate stage before the live shows, with all of the coaches leaving the UK and Ireland, even Louis Walsh!

Nicole Scherzinger will be flying her girls to Antigua in the Caribbean while Gary Barlow is taking his groups to New York.

Also visiting the US is Sharon Osbourne with the Overs, heading out to LA, while Louis is venturing a little closer to home by travelling to France.

"Once again, bosses have pulled out all the stops and have chosen some glamorous locations for judges’ houses," a source told The Sun newspaper this morning. "It’s always a head-scratcher each year to think of somewhere that will have a great backdrop to film this crucial stage against.

“We’ve never done the sky-scrapers of Manhattan, so that will be a huge treat for the groups.

“And Antigua speaks for itself — lush palm trees and perfect white sandy beaches.”

This year six acts in each of the four categories will fly out with their mentors, where they will be halved to just three for the start of the live shows in October.

The X Factor 2013 will start on ITV next month.
