X Factor gossip! Here's what the finalists have been up to in the house

Latest X Factor 2016 news


Here's an update on all of the latest gossip from The X Factor 2016 house.

A total of seven acts remain in the competition and they're all living together at a plush mansion in North London.

But after the recent exits - including girl group Four Of Diamonds - it's all getting very empty now.

Matt Terry admitted: "It's changed a lot. A lot of my close friends have left the competition, which has been hard to go through. I'm still enjoying it but I miss them."


However he said life in The X Factor house is still "mad", with him and the 5 After Midnight guys playing pranks on each other.

"By 8AM there's usually a camera crew there filming us, so it's crazy. I share a room with Ryan, which is nice because we're really close. We help each other out a lot," Matt added.

Meanwhile, Emily Middlemas revealed she had been getting advice from current X Factor champ Louisa Johnson after the the finalists went on a night out.

Emily spilled: "Thursday is like our day off so it was a really fun night. It was cool to go to a concert with Ryan because the only one we've been to before is Rihanna.

"I met Louisa Johnson there. She won The X Factor last year and was so lovely. She just told me to enjoy the the time I've had on the show."

However while there is some downtime in the house, Emily admitted the pressure on all the acts was only increasing as the competition heats up.

She explained: "Our week is intense because we get our results on a Sunday night, and by Monday morning we've already been given our next song and working on our performance.

"After Gifty left we realised anyone can go, no matter how good they are, so I'm definitely feeling the pressure."


And with the line up of contestants depleting, Emily admitted: "It's so weird in the house now because it's just me, Sam and Saara [sharing a room].

"It's really quiet without Gifty and Relley. At the start of the competition it was so hectic, and you could hear everyone."

One more act will be heading home in tonight's latest live results show at 8PM on ITV, which will feature performances from Olly Murs and Nathan Sykes.
