'X Factor' Categories Revealed, As Judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick Grimshaw And Rita Ora Discover Who They'll Mentor

X Factor’ bosses have revealed which categories the judges will be mentoring on the ITV talent show this year.


Fans have been able to chose which contestants Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora will be assigned, in a Twitter vote, as part of the show’s revamp.

The results are now in, and we can confirm that Simon has been given the overs, Cheryl will mentor the groups, Nick has landed the boys, while Rita has bagged the girls.

The announcement was made on The X Factor’s official Twitter account on Tuesday (1 September), as filming of the Six Chair Challenge got underway at Wembley Arena.

The controversial stage of the competition is making a comeback this year, despite viewers’ calls for it to be axed due to its cruel nature.

However, it will only serve as one part of the Bootcamp stage, as the judges already filmed an elimination round at a country hotel last month.

The show returned to screens last weekend, and featured impressive auditions from the likes of Louisa Johnson, Josh Daniel and The First Kings.

However, Filipino girlband Fourth Power have already been caught up in a storm, after it was revealed they’d previously found success on a talent show in South Korea.

‘The X Factor’ continues this Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
