The X Factor wildcard 2017 vote has now closed - but who could be back at for the live shows?

At the end of judges' houses on Sunday the final 12 finalists were revealed.

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

There will be a total of FOUR wild card acts on The X Factor 2017 - one in each category - who will join the 12 finalists chosen by the judges.

In each category, you were able to vote for one of the three acts who made judges' houses but wasn't chosen by their mentor to make the live shows.

The results of the wild card vote will be revealed at the start of this Saturday's show at 8:20PM on ITV.

But here are the favourites: In the girls category, where Alisah Bonaobra, Deanna Mussington and Georgina Panton all competed, it's Alisah who's tipped to get the spot.

In the Overs category, Talia Dean, Slavko and Berget Lewis went head to head and Talia is the strong favourite to come out on top.

In the Groups, Lemonade, Jack & Joel and The New Girl Group fought for a second chance and it could be the closest result, with Jack & Joel currently the narrow tips to triumph.

Finally, in the Boys, Jack Mason, Aidan Martin and Leon Mallett were put up for the wild card vote. Aidan is the current favourite but Leon getting the wild card spot wouldn't be a total shock either.
