X Factor: Celebrity. The finalists through to the live shows

Simon Cowell judging X Factor at his Malibu home

Tonight we see the start of the lives shows. 13 acts will compete to be the Celebrity winner 2019.

Simon Cowell will mentor the Groups, Nicole Scherzinger the Overs and Louis Walsh the Unders.

In a surprise announcement Vinnie Jones (football legend and actor) will be joining the live shows. Vinnie was due to take part in the auditions when his wife tragically died just before they were filmed. Simon offered him a place in the live shows which he agreed to as his wife Tanya wanted him to do this.

UPDATE: The judges have put through Jenny Ryan to the live shows. Twitter was outraged Jenny didn't make the cut, they listened!

The new set looks amazing from a few teaser photos X Factor have released.
