The X Factor's live tour line up will be confirmed this evening, with the top 8 acts making the cut.

It means that whoever is given the chop this evening is set to miss out on next year's live arena shows.

However The Sun on Sunday newspaper report that Honey G may be offered a place on the line up 'whatever happens'.

“All of the acts that make it through to next week will appear on the tour next year. But the one everyone is really hoping for is Honey G because she is so entertaining," an insider told the newspaper.

They added: “The bosses might even discuss inviting her on board even if she is voted off.

“It would be a disaster if she fell at the last hurdle.”

While The X Factor live tour contestants typically include the Top 8 acts, others have been added in the past.

Last year saw Seann Miley Moore join as a wild card performer while in 2010 the line up was expanded to nine acts to include Aiden Grimshaw.

The X Factor UK 2017 live tour was confirmed earlier this year.

So far a total of 16 live tour dates have been announced, starting in February in Nottingham and ending in March in Brighton, although more dates may be added later.

Tickets start at £20, plus booking fee. You can buy tickets online at Ticket Master.

The X Factor live tour will see the acts on the bill perform a number of songs from the live shows. Usually there are also a few special duets between acts as well as group numbers.

The X Factor winner typically closes the show each evening with their own 20 minute set.
