This weekend the remaining contestants will be back on the stage singing for the four judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. And of course us at home who have almost all of the voting power.

But before they’re back on that stage there’s rehearsing to get done, selfies to be taken and funky clothing to be worn…

Andrea is wearing a Fred Flintstone print t-shirt, which I think is all I really need to say on the matter…

It’s all about Jake as Jake from Mel’s team hangs with Jake from Louis Walsh’s Stereo Kicks

Solo artist Paul Akister makes for a handy mobile phone background

SOMEONE SEND SOME MEDICINE 

The newly named eight-piece boyband have been working on their moves. Charlie’s loving it…

And of course, given it’s a singing competition, some of this is going on…

Ben Haenow has been out and about with Xtra Factor host Sarah-Jane Crawford

Ben has also been “busting some shapes”

You just have to admire Fleur East’s abs…

Lauren Platt from Cheryl’s team met a certain lad from a certain boy band…

Not entirely sure what’s going on here… 

Band selfies… naturally

And of course, who wouldn’t want to hang with former contestant Rylan Clark?
