The X Factor 2014 wildcard acts have been revealed with four extra acts making it through to the live shows.

It was confirmed this week that each of the four categories would be getting an extra act.

And they could be amongst those who were kicked out back at bootcamp during the six chair challenge.

In a further twist, the judges chose each other's wild card with the four mystery acts confirmed tonight.

Cheryl had to pick an Over for Simon Cowell and picked Stevi Ritchie. He said: "I thought it was a wind-up. It was probably one of the best moments of my life when I found out I was the wild card.”

Simon had to pick a Boy for Mel B and picked Jack Walton. He said: "I couldn’t believe it when I was told I was coming back. I had been given a second chance. The first thing that came into my head was, ‘This is it now, I have to give everything. It is a last chance’."

Mel had to pick a Group for Louis and picked Overload. They said: “It was incredible, we didn’t have an inkling at all. It is the best feeling ever. We had started lining up gigs but we have had to cancel them now.”

Louis had to pick a Girl for Cheryl and picked Lola Saunders. She said: "Seeing the girls again was weird. They were, like: ‘What are you doing back?’”

The X Factor continues tonight on ITV and tomorrow night with the first results show.
