X Factor's Caitlyn Vanbeck is set to team up with Union J for their tour.

Union J appeared on The X Factor back in 2012, getting as far as the Quarter Finals.

The boys partially split in March this year after George Shelley left the group.

It undid the work of The X Factor judges who originally put the group together on the show, having added then solo singer George to trio Triple J - made up of Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett and Jaymi Hemsley - to form Union J.

But now they've got a new member - former Stereo Kicks singer Casey Johnson - and are hitting the road next year.

The boys, who are also working on a new album, have revealed Caitlyn will be joining them for dates in Scotland.

Union J tweeted: "So proud of @caitlynvanbeckx ! Excited to announce she will be opening for us in Scotland on our tour in February!!! #proud"

Fans of Caitlyn - who missed out on the live shows last weekend - called on the boys to add her to every date.

"She needs to do the whole tour 🎤" one wrote.

Caitlyn agreed: "WAHHH ID LOVE TO!!!!!"
