The seven top acts - and one eliminated one - from ITV’s talent show join forces to deliver The X Factor Live Tour 2016, with two performances planned for The O2 on Saturday.

For those needing an introduction to the others, the magnificent seven are Ghanian duo Reggie ‘N’ Bollie, Lauren Murray (formerly a dental receptionist), Filipino girl group 4th Impact, (incidentally, they are four sisters), Louisa Johnson (at 18, the show’s youngest winner), lovable underdog Che Chesterman, cancer survivor Anton Stephans (who, admittedly, seems quite sweet) and Mason Noise, who came seventh and didn’t appear in the TV final reunion. Phew.
Reviews have been favourable so far and we can expect the assorted singers to march through feel-good covers with all the enthusiasm of people who know it is not the winning that matters, but the taking part.
1pm and 6.30pm, Saturday, March 5, tickets start at £23, The O2 arena
