The line-up includes James Arthur, Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas, Rylan Clark, Christopher Maloney and boybands Union J and District3. All seven acts are all still in contention for this year's title.

The 15-date tour will stop at the Odyssey Arena on 27 February following a night at The O2 in Dublin on 25 February.

The X Factor finalists will hit the road in Manchester at the end of January before travelling to Brighton, Cardiff, Nottingham, Liverpool, London, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

Ella Henderson said: "I cannot believe that at only 16 I have not only had the amazing opportunity and experience of appearing on X Factor I am now fulfilling a dream by taking part in an arena tour".

Union J said: "We cannot wait to go on The X Factor Live Tour and meet all the fans and thank them personally for all their support".

James Arthur added: "A year ago I was busking in the street and playing in my local pub so knowing that next year I'll be performing at arenas is totally mind blowing, I can't wait".

The contestants will perform classic songs and viewers' favourites from the series.

The X Factor Live Tour has been one of the biggest selling arena tours in the UK for the last eight years, with more than two million people attending.

Tickets are on sale.
