The X Factor 2014 final 12 have been chosen, and they've been busy preparing for the live shows this week in London.

The X Factor judges spent last last month deciding which of the acts in each of their categories would be going through to the final sages of the show.

Show bosses are keen to make sure that they won't be revealed before the show airs, secretly transporting them to London this week to kick off preparations.

There will no doubt be the usual makeovers, and of course plenty of filming.

In fact, the X Factor lot have even been given a personal trainer and put through another X Factor bootcamp, although this one really got them sweating.

The finalists have now moved in to a posh London mansion in Enfield ahead of next Saturday night's first live episode.

The £3 million, eight bedroom house has everything from a pool to a sauna and gym, making us wonder if they'll struggle to focus on the competition!

This weekend we'll see the final contestants revealed, as the judges' houses stage of the contest airs.

Offering a glimpse into the jet set lifestyle that the winner of the competition could have, the four categories travel to glamorous destinations across the world.

With just one more chance to impress their mentor, each act will be hoping to convince them that they have the star quality required to reach the live shows.

The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
