How will the final work?

The same as recent years: On the Saturday all three finalists will perform a new solo song as lines open.

They'll then sing a second song (their duet) before lines are frozen. The contestant with the fewest votes will then be eliminated from the competition.

On Sunday the remaining two acts will go head to head as lines reopen.

The top two will each sing their potential winner's song before lines close towards the end of the evening when the winner will be confirmed.

Who are the X Factor finalists?

Matt Terry, Saara Aalto and 5 After Midnight have all made it to the X Factor UK finals and one will be crowned the winner by Sunday night.

What about The X Factor 2016 duets?

The X Factor 2016 winner's song has not been confirmed but rumour has it, Ed Sheeran has written a new original track. If true, it'd be the first time since 2005 - and only the second time in X Factor history - that the winner has put out a brand new song.
