This year's crop might not even have faced the public vote yet, but X-Factor fans can already snap up tickets for the 2016 live tour - which hits Leeds Arena in February.

Fans can see the stars of this year’s show perform live on stage as the winner and fellow finalists embark on a 16 date arena tour which comes to Leeds Arena on Friday, February 26.

The X Factor has produced big names in music including Leona Lewis, Olly Murs, Little Mix, JLS, Union J and One Direction – and all of them have taken part in previous tours.

So it's your chance to see some of the potential pop superstars of the future before they go global.

Among this year's hopefuls is Chapeltown's own Nicola 'Bupsi' Brown, who wowed the judges in the early stages of the competition with her soulful voice and sultry antics.

The competition will this weekend move into the 'Judges' Houses' stage - where the final six hopefuls in each category are whittled down even further to find the final 12 who will go on to perform on the live TV shows.
