Former X Factor runner up Fleur East joins Louis Walsh at judges' houses this this weekend.

Fleur, who lost out to Ben Haenow in the 2014 series of the show, is with Louis in Ibiza as he picks his top groups for the live shows also with the help of Alesha Dixon

Sunday evening saw this year's Six Chair Challenge conclude as Louis took charge of his regular category on the show once more.

Despite mentoring them almost every series, Louis has yet to win with a group but could that change this year?

After taking his sweet time in the Six Chair Challenge deciding his final six, including a three way girl group face off for the final seat, 5AM, Skarl3t, Four of Diamonds, The Brooks, Ottavio and Bradley and Tom and Laura were all put through to judges' houses.

And they're joined by Yes Lad who were chosen by Sharon Osbourne as the wild card for the groups category.

Five piece boyband Yes Lad is made up of Joel, Cian, Sonny, Lewis and Luke, who originally secured a seat in the Six Chair Challenge but were swapped out.

Yes Lad said at the weekend: “We thought that was it and we were out. It’s so surreal to now be going to Louis’ house. We feel we’re the underdog and have something to prove to Louis. We have Sharon on our side and she said that she believed in us so hopefully Louis will listen to her.”

But which of them will make the live show?

Elsewhere this weekend, Simon Cowell invites the Girls category to Malibu, the Overs category are hosted by Sharon Osbourne in her home in Los Angeles and the Boys category fly out to Nice to perform for Nicole Scherzinger.

Nicole enlists the help of renowned DJ Calvin Harris, Simon recruits former Spice Girls, Mel B and Emma Bunton and Sharon reunites with singer Robbie Williams.

Find out who gets through to the LIVE SHOWS during the judges' houses when The X Factor continues on ITV Saturday 1st October at 8pm and Sunday 2nd October at 7.30pm.
