The X Factor 2014 judges' have been given their categories, but who's got what?.

This year the judges - Cheryl Cole, Mel B, Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh - have again been given their categories before bootcamp starts this weekend.

Cheryl's got the GIRLS for the THIRD time in her four series while Mel B has been given the BOYS for her first run.

Simon Cowell has been given the OVERS while Louis Walsh has the GROUPS.

Despite being given the traditionally tough category (even if they did win last year with Sam Bailey), Simon's happy.

A source said this morning: “He’s really chuffed with the overs. There’s a lot of talent in his group and he reckons he’s got a good chance of winning.”

Another insider added: "Cheryl was thrilled. She’s been teasing Simon non-stop since ­saying he may as well quit now ­because there’s no way he will win."

Bootcamp will take place this weekend in London at Wembley Arena, before the final few acts in each category fly out for judges' houses.

Each judge will choose six acts to take through to judges' houses in the return of the 'Six Chair Challenge'.

One by one, the remaining acts in each category will perform for all four judges who will comment and critique the act.

Then, the mentor for that category will decide whether or not to give the contestant a 'seat' in the next round.

Once all six seats are full, the mentors must then decide who to swap and replace in the seats if they want to take further any further acts through.

The X Factor 2014 is set to launch later this month on ITV.
