x factor 2014 spoilers 08

The first of this year's X Factor wild cards has apparently been revealed.

This year's show is set to feature FOUR wild card act, one in each category.

It had been reported that each judge would pick an act for another category, with Cheryl picking the wild card for Mel B’s Boys, while Mel selects a group for Louis Walsh to mentor.

Then Louis will choose an Over 25 act as Simon Cowell’s wild card before the X Factor boss picks an act for Cheryl to complete the circle.

Although Irish website Goss.ie say that Louis Walsh's wild card is supposedly Girls category singer Orla Keogh.

Orla didn't even make judges' houses, having been ditched (controversially so) at bootcamp in a last minute choice by Cheryl which saw Chloe Jasmine put through in her place.

Speaking earlier this week, Louis Walsh said: “Orla should made the live shows.

"I think she could be a great recording artist and has an amazing confidence and look.”

Other acts rumoured for the four wild card spots include boy band Overload and Over 28 singer Janet Grogan.

Simon Cowell sent home Janet at the weekend but tweeted after the show had aired: "I should have kept Janet. My mistake."

The X Factor continues this Friday, Saturday and Sunday with judges' houses.
