The weekend’s X Factor ended in the judges selecting the final 12 contestants of the competition. Simon Cowell will be mentoring the girls, selecting Emily Middlemas, Gifty Louise and Sam Lavery as his final three. Meanwhile, Calvin Harris helped Nicole Scherzinger to chose Matt Terry, Freddy Parker and Ryan Lawrie as the final three boys.

Louis Walsh selected 5AM, The Brooks along with Bradley and Ottavio as his final three for the groups, while Robbie Williams assisted Sharon Osbourne with the over 25s, choosing Relley C, Saara Aalto and rapper Honey G – the latter caused great controversy among many viewers.

Earlier this year, 2014 winner Ben Haenow became the latest to part ways with Simon Cowell’s record label SYCO.
