X Factor spoilers! Judges' houses locations and first guests REVEALED

X Factor 2017  judges

The first details about The X Factor 2016 judges' houses have been revealed.

And after last year's live failure, they've gone back to normal this year.

Once again each of the four judges will each be jetting out across the globe to pick the final acts in their category for the live shows.

As always, they'll be joined by a special guest judge.

Nicole Scherzinger will be in the South of France with music and producer DJ Calvin Harris. The pair filmed judges' houses this week.

Alesha Dixon will be with Louis Walsh in Ibiza and have already filmed judges' houses. Alesha said: "Louis is crazy, we had such a laugh, I tried to advise him but I take no responsibility for the choices he made!"

Simon Cowell will be in America and is rumoured (but not confirmed) to be joined by former judge Cheryl... or perhaps Sinitta?

And finally, Sharon Osbourne will be in LA but her guest judge has yet to be revealed.
