X Factor 2017 judges

The X Factor wildcard 2017 twist has been confirmed with four acts returning for the live shows.

At the end of judges' houses this evening the final 12 finalists were revealed.

But viewers now have the opportunity to give a second chance to acts who have been sent home, voting them through to the live shows next weekend.
