A total of eight acts are on The X Factor tour for this year, made up of the top acts in last year's 2016 contest.

They are Nicole Scherzinger's Boys - Matt Terry and Ryan Lawrie - and Simon Cowell's two Girls - Emily Middlemas and Samantha Lavery.

They're joined by Sharon Osbourne's remaining Overs - Honey G and Saara Aalto - and finally Louis Walsh's two Groups - 5 After Midnight and Four of Diamonds.

The finalists have been reuniting this week as they perfect their vocals and dance moves for the shows.

The X Factor 2017 tour will see the contestants reprising their favourite performances from the live shows, and no doubt there will be some surprises thrown into the mix as well.
