Fans of new X Factor judge Louis Tomlinson have reportedly been leaking results of the show.

Louis is one of three new X Factor 2018 judges this year alongside husband and wife Robbie Williams and Ayda Williams.

They join Simon Cowell on the panel, who are currently filming the six chair challenge stage in London.

Speaking backstage at Wembley, Louis - who has the Boys - said after the first day of filming earlier this week: "It was as brutal if not more brutal than as you see on TV."

He added: "I'm nervous about my category tomorrow and excited. I hope everyone delivers."

Louis was in the hot seat on Thursday night but the results of his six chair challenge made it online within minutes.

In scenes not set to air until October time, fans of the show shared clips of the performances along with Louis's six finalists, The Sun reports.

Louis himself was a lot more careful when it came to Twitter, not giving anything anyway.

He teased simply: "Now I’ve got my final 6 I’m proper excited for the next stage! #XFactor"

In the Six Chair Challenge, all the successful acts in each category from the auditions sing one after the other for all the judges plus a live audience.

All the panel comment but it's only be the mentor of that category that picks who goes through to judges' houses.

Those who make it will take a seat on one of six chairs but they're place in the next round is far from safe.

As more acts sing, the mentors can choose to swap those in a seat out for another act if they feel others performed better.

Only those that are left sitting at the end once everyone has sung will go forward to judges' houses

At judges' houses, acts will sing again to make the live shows, where Sharon Osbourne will join the panel.

The X Factor 2018 will start on ITV later this year.
