The X Factor Xploded

The X Factor reaches its semi-final stages and our TV correspondent Jake Yapp is ON FIRE.

There are now just three acts left – Amelia Lily in the Girls, Little Mix in the Groups and Marcus Collins in the Boys – who will return next weekend (December 10 and 11) to battle it out for this year’s X Factor crown.

For the first time ever the Final will be staged at Wembley Arena in front of an audience of 10,000. Coldplay, Michael Bublé, and former X Factor stars One Direction JLS and Leona Lewis will all be performing on the show.

The three acts will all perform twice on Saturday and lines will then be frozen. The person with the lowest number of votes will then leave the competition, and the remaining two will return to battle it out on Sunday night’s results show.

X Factor returns on Saturday December 10 at 8pm and Sunday December 11 at 7.30pm.
