The X Factor 2016 final is coming and it's going to be "huge".

This weekend 5 After Midnight, Matt Terry and Saara Aalto will face off in this year's last live show.

And it's set to be the closest race ever with each having both topped the vote and appeared in the sing off over the past nine weeks.

As always, the final is split over two nights with a number of performances from the acts as well as guest stars.

"It’s going to be just huge," said X Factor creative director Brian Friedman. "For those three that perform in that setting – it ‘s a taste of victory.You can expect something very special…"

He told ITV's Lorraine: “It’s all about the duets because they get to sing with someone in the game.

“It gives them a feeling as if they have already made it.”

The X Factor 2016 final starts on TV this Saturday night, December 10 from 8PM on ITV and continues on Sunday night at the same time. Both shows run until 10:05PM each evening.

The X Factor final will be coming live from the SSE Arena, Wembley on both Saturday and Sunday nights.

On the Saturday all three finalists will perform a solo song as lines open to vote for the winner.

They'll each 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.
