Ahead of tonight’s first X Factor live show of the series, The Daily Star has revealed the identities of the four wildcards.
Each of the four judges has picked a wildcard contestant for a different category with Louis Walsh selecting the fourth girl, Cheryl selecting the fourth over, Simon selecting the fourth boy and Mel B selecting the fourth group. The four additional contestants will compete alongside the already revealed final 12.
According to The Daily Star Louis picked Lola Saunders to join the Girls, Cheryl selected Stevi Ritchie to join the Overs, Simon picked Jack Walton to join the Boys and Mel B chose Overload to join the Groups. Only Mel B selected an act that didn’t make it through to the judges’ houses stage of the competition.
X Factor haven’t confirmed the reports of The Daily Star but we would be very surprised if these didn’t prove to be the wildcards.
All will be revealed/confirmed during tonight’s X Factor which kicks off at 7.30pm on ITV.
