X Factor stars Union J are heading on tour as they write their latest album with their new line up.

The guys, who made the quarter finals of The X Factor in 2012, have had a member swap after losing George Shelley earlier this year when he quit the group.

Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett and Jaymi Hensley didn't call it quits, instead adding another X Factor alumni to their ranks in the form of Stereo Kicks' Casey Johnson.

Chatting on Loose Women recently, Josh explained how they had auditioned a few potential new members before teaming up with Casey.

"We met a few lads and Casey was the one who stood out for us. He looks the part, he sounds the part, he's a lovely guy," he said.

Now the new four piece have announced a tour for later this year with tickets selling out FAST.

Between now and then, the group have been jetting off to the States to record music for their new record.

"THESE NEW SONGS ARE GOING TO BLOW YOUR MINDS," JJ teased this week.

New Union J star Casey added on Twitter: "Honestly guys , the new music is sounding 😍! I can't wait for you guys to hear it... Ahhhhhh 🇺🇸🙌🏻"

But it hasn't been plain sailing for the group who were forced to deny another split.

JJ took to Twitter to say: "Finally got my phone back 👏👏 just seen messages that "I'm leaving UNION J" this is NOT true, I'm always always going to be in the band ❤️"

Union J's new album is expected to drop by the end of the year.
