X Factor 2016 finalists move in together and get makeovers!


The X Factor 2016 finalists have moved into their new house, and got a glam makeover.

Ahead of the live shows starting this weekend, the X Factor final 12 contestants are living together in a North London mansion.

Although they've not been spending a great deal of time there, instead rehearsing for their first live performance and undergoing the traditional X Factor 'makeover'.

Brooks Way (formerly The Brooks) said: "It feels good to get our hair done and be fussed over, that's never happened before."


The show's head of wardrobe Laury Smith said of working with the group: "We've got a lot of people with a strong sense of their own style. They're really enthusiastic and a lot of fun."

Meanwhile Freddy Parker revealed: "Yesterday literally I was slogging it out in the kennels in the rain.

"To be here now is so surreal, being pulled left to right and having a crazy time, doing all these amazing things. I'm loving every second of it."

Back in the house and Emily Middlemas has been gushing over boyfriend Ryan Lawrie.

"I AM THE PROUDEST GIRLFRIEND IN THE UNIVERSE" she tweeted after Ryan made the live shows alongside herself "We are actually in live shows together! 'ARE YOU SERIOUS?!' I love you."


Ryan admitted the relationship was on "fast-forward" with the pair now living together.

"We're not allowed to share a room though," he added.


The photos from the official glam makeover shoot will be released tonight so check back later!

The X Factor 2016 goes live this Saturday night on ITV from 8PM.
