X Factor 2014 finalists: Meet the top three Overs in the final 12

Ben Haenow (X Factor 2014)

The latest three of the X Factor 2014 UK final 12 have been revealed with the Overs finalists confirmed.

On Friday night we saw Louis Walsh whittle down the six acts in the Groups category and yesterday it was the top three Boys who were confirmed.

And this evening it was the turn of the Overs.

All six of the judges' houses finalists in the competitive category sung for mentor Simon Cowell and guest judge Sinitta before he delivered the tough verdicts.

Helen Fulthorpe, Stevi Ritchie and Lizzy Pattinson were all set home.

But it means that Ben Haenow, Jay James and Fleur East are in the live shows and are X Factor 2014 finalists!.

Ben said: "I can't believe it. I wasn't happy with my performance and everyone else was so good. To be the last one to be sent through, as well. It felt like I was waiting for a year.”

Fleur reacted: “It's been so emotional. I couldn't even imagine beforehand, how it would feel if I went through. I've had so many knock backs, I've been conditioned to be disappointed. When Simon said those words, 'I believe in you', it was amazing.”

Jay added: " I've dedicated my last few years to this and I've worked hard. I've not achieved what I want to achieve yet. If I don't do that now, I kind of need to move on and be a provider for my family. And get a day job.”

The trio of acts join Louis groups Blonde Electric, Only The Young and the new Boyband, Mel and her boys: Jake Quickenden, Paul Akister and Andrea Faustini, and Cheryl's three still to be confirmed Girls.


Sunday night is also set to see a special X Factor 2014 wild card twist, which will end with each category getting an extra act.

The X Factor continues next Saturday and Sunday on ITV with the first live shows.
