The 2013 finalists are in the city this weekend for the X Factor Live Tour at the Odyssey Arena on Saturday and Sunday.

But the performers have managed to squeeze in a bit of sightseeing between gigs, with series winner Sam Bailey visiting Titanic Belfast alongside fellow singer Abi Alton.

Sam posted a picture of the pair clad in period costume on her Twitter page, writing: "Me and Abi had a great time at the titanic exhibition in Belfast.. Highly recommended x."

Abi added: "Just had an amazing morning at the titanic museum. Staff were brilliant strongly suggest a visit to anyone!"

Meanwhile the rest of the X Factor performers have been sharing their experiences of Belfast following their first concert, with Sam Callahan going on a shopping spree in the city before Sunday's show.

"A spot of shopping for essentials before tonight's show - getting mega excited again x," he told his fans.

The X Factor live tour kicked off in Belfast on Saturday with the finalists taking to Twitter after their first show to thanks their fans.

Last year's runner-up Nicholas McDonald said: "Belfast fans are crazy!"

"Belfast...THAT was madness," added third-placed Luke Friend.

The tour continues at Dublin's O2 Arena on Monday before heading on to Newcastle, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Sheffield, London, Leeds, Nottingham, Brighton, Cardiff and Birmingham.
