Filming for The X Factor 2016's Six Chair Challenge was reportedly left in chaos over the weekend.

Recording for the show took place at Wembley Arena on Saturday, Sunday and Monday as the four judges whittled the acts in their categories down to just six a piece.

On Saturday, things started VERY late as Simon Cowell was put into the spotlight first with his category.

Then on Sunday, delays with Sharon picking her contestants for judges' houses meant that the evening recording due to start at 5PM didn't begin until gone 10PM.

While the acts had no choice but to wait around, the audience didn't and The Sun newspaper reports that there were many empty seats as filming eventually started.

The tabloid reports that X Factor boss Simon Cowell ended up calling an end to filming half way through the performances due to the lack of crowd interaction.

"Simon seemed to be tired and bored by the amount of time he’d spent in the studio," a source said.

That of course had a knock on impact on Monday's schedule, which also ended up running late due to filming involving host Dermot O'Leary.

However things were eventually wrapped up last night as the top 24 acts at judges' houses were confirmed.

You can watch exactly what went down on screen when The X Factor returns to TV on ITV later this year.
