What time is X Factor on tonight? Six chair challenge continues with the Groups!

The X Factor 2017 six chair challenge continues tonight with the Groups category – but when is it on?


Last week we saw Simon Cowell put in charge of the category for the first time since One Direction.

Now he’ll be the second judge to pick contestants for judges’ houses in the six chair challenge after last Sunday’s Girls category with Sharon Osbourne.

What time is X Factor on tonight?

The X Factor 2017 start time tonight, October 14, is 8:15PM with the show running to 10:15PM.

The six chair challenge will then continue on Sunday night.

In tonight’s Groups category, contestants through to the Six Chair Challenge from bootcamp include duos AFRO-SWAGG, made up of Adasnoop and Kingsley, EASYLIFE, made up of couple Brad and Sara, pals JACK & JOEL and brothers SEAN & CONOR PRICE.


Also fighting for a place in judges’ houses are a number of girl groups: BEAU ROAD, Beth, Taylor, Eden, Bethany and Cally, LEMONADE, Shania, Saffron, twins Yemi and Chilee and Mya and NQ, Georgia, Kiara, Ash, Sasha and Sophie.

We also see THE CUTKELVINS – siblings Shereen, Jay and Kyle – once more, as well as RAK-SU, made up of Ashley, Jamaal, Myles and Mustafa.

Rounding off the group contestants are JBK, Joshua, Bryan and Kim from the Philippines and a brand new girl group.

Performances will take place at Wembley Arena with six chairs on the stage representing the spots at judges’ houses.

The acts in each category will perform once, one after the other, for all the judges and a live audience having picked what they hoe is a killer song to get them through.

All the judges will comment – and you can be sure the audience will make their opinion known – but it’ll be the mentor of that category who alone decides whether to give an act a seat or to send them home there and then.

In a new twist for 2017, the mentor in charge of the performing category will sit on their own away from the other judges on their lonesome.

Only once all the acts in the category have performed are the six in the seats finalised, with those lucky acts left sitting down through to the next round.


The X Factor 2017 airs Saturday night at 8:15PM on ITV.

The Six Chair Challenge continues on Sunday with the remaining Overs and the Boys.
