X Factor 2014 judges get given categories but Cheryl doesn't want to know

Cheryl Cole (The X Factor 2014)

The X Factor 2014 judges have been handed their categories this weekend but they don't all want to know.

This Saturday and Sunday is X Factor bootcamp at Wembley Arena as the judges whittle down the remaining acts to just a handful for judges' houses.

And as with last year, the panel have been handed their categories before bootcamp begins.

Each judge will decide which acts make it through to the next stage in their categories as the six seat challenge returns.

However returning judge Cheryl seemed to be having some worries last night about which category she'd be handed this series.

She posted the below Instagram snap, writing: "Which category will I get!!!!!! #Xf2014 "

The former Girls Aloud star later jokingly tweeted Simon Cowell and Mel B to tell them she was too sick to take part in today's filming.

"@SimonCowell @OfficialMelB I think I ate something funny tonight. I'm sorry but I am afraid I may be too ill to come tomorrow," Cheryl said.

She added: "@OfficialMelB sorry Mel. I will be there for you in spirit"

Mel on the other hand seemed very excited about the next stage of the contest.

She tweeted: "Wow can't wait for you lot to see this years xfactor been filming ALL day and it just got real interesting."
