This year, for the first time ever, the X Factor judges' categories were chosen by us the viewers.

The Twitter vote opened during Saturday night's debut show, asking fans to tweet which judge they wanted to mentor which category.

Today, as filming got underway on this year's Six Chair Challenge, it was time for the judges to find out the result so they could get down to the business of building their teams.

So who's mentoring whom? Well, check it out:

But, then, given by how much his fans have been campaigning for Grimshaw to get the Girls he may not be too chuffed.

The X Factor continues this Saturday and Sunday on ITV
