X Factor 2016 spoilers: Groups six chair challenge ends in CHAOS

x factor 2016 groups - 23

Louis Walsh causes utter chaos on The X Factor 2016 tonight as the Groups head to the six chair challenge.

It all starts calmly enough with Louis quickly filling up his six seats as the acts left in the Groups category take to the stage.

But once all six spots are full, things become a bit of a mess.

Louis first causes outrage after not giving one particular group a seat which causes a major negative reaction from the crowd, and even Simon Cowell chants along: "Bring them back!"

It leaves the next act walking on to a sea of boos, with Louis reassuring them: "They're not booing you guys, they're booing me."

Things then get worse as Louis swaps one act for another, only to change his mind and undo the switch leading to a game of VERY tense musical chairs.

And all this happens with groups still to perform as trio Skarl3t are left watching on backstage.

They finally hit the spotlight with all six seats full and declare: "The reason why we deserve a seat over there is because we're fighters, there is definitely room in the industry for an urban girl group."

After singing, Skarl3t are told by Simon Cowell: "I would give you a chair right now."

However with Louis in charge, it just can't be that simple.

He decides to bring ANOTHER act back before having a three way face off over two seats.

"I have to send one group home," Louis says.

Seemingly getting bored of waiting, Sharon says: "Do it Louis."

Once the final six are FINALLY confirmed, Simon Cowell declares: "That was hell. I thought it was bad two years ago, this was worse."

And host Dermot O'Leary reacts: "In, out, shake it all about, what was he doing?!"
