X Factor bosses have done their ultimate best not to let any slips or press leaks ruin the tension as the X Factor is aired tonight where the fabulous final twelve will be revealed to the world.

However already the rumour mill is on fire with reports saying that funky new girl band Xyra have accidentally let slip that they are already in the finals by tweeting a picture of band member Sasha falling off a chair with the words sashaxyra falls off a chair –AGAIN #rehearsals. Surely this can only mean one thing? The girls were whisked off to Gary Barlow’s pad in New York for the judges houses where he, with the help of previous X Factor winner and friend Olly Murs, decided on which of the bands to take through. Whether it was a slip or not the girls certainly seem to be in high spirits and having fun!

All will be revealed this weekend where all twelve finalists will be revealed, then the usual glamorous makeover will take place to set the competition really rolling ahead of the first episode of the live shows which will take place on the twelfth of October –we can’t wait!
