X Factor 2016 judges get their categories but who's got what?

xf reactions

The X Factor judges got their categories for the first time this year in tonight's show.

Assuming of course you hadn't read any of the countless spoilers up until now...

This evening saw bootcamp take place before the acts were split up into their four categories: The girls, the boys, the groups and the Over 25s.

The singers in each category were then placed in a room before it was revealed which judge would have which category.

First to find out was girls who had Simon Cowell walk in as their mentor.

Gifty Louise reacted: "When I saw Simon walk through, honestly, my head just exploded, my heart was just being like 'YES!'"

Next it was the Groups and - to the surprise of no one - it was Louis Walsh who got put in charge to chants of "LOUIS" from the acts while Dermot O'Leary branded him "King of the groups"

It was then onto the boys who rushed towards Nicole Scherzinger as she stepped into their room.

"I hope you guys are ready to work," she told them, "I wish I came in here with a whip."

"So do we!" quipped Matt Terry.

That left Sharon Osbourne to mentor the Overs who seemed more than happy with the match.

From here it's onto the Six Chair Challenge.

Honey G declared: "Honey G is coming at the six chair challenge. It's just going to go down at Wembley Arena, it's just going to kick off left, right and centre, this is like the sickest thing that's ever happened to me."

The X Factor returns next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
