The X Factor: Celebrity - who's in the Saturday night ITV show?

A new X Factor is on our TVs on Saturday night - but this time it's famous faces trying to impress Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh. It's time for The X Factor: Celebrity! There are three categories: Groups, Unders (27 and younger) and Overs (28 and older). Read on to find out more about which stars are taking to the stage.
GROUPS: CBBC FOMO'S very own Max and Harvey will be testing their vocal talents in the groups category. The twin brothers, 16, first became famous on the social app musical.ly in March 2016. Since then, they have released their own songs, toured and featured in their very own CBBC documentary, My Life: Max & Harvey.

You might have seen Wes Nelson before as he appeared on the most recent series of Dancing On Ice and even made the final! Meanwhile, Samira Mighty has performed in the West End in London. But what will they be like singing together?

Evans used to play for Scotland, Davis represented England at under-18 and under-19 level, while Foden plays for Rugby United New York and also played for England.

Between them, they have around 11 million followers and more than 250 million views on YouTube, so we're sure they'll be hoping these fans get behind them on the X Factor too!

THE OVERS: You may recognise Jenny as one of the chasers from ITV quiz show The Chase, but she has also competed on The Weakest Link, University Challenge and Mastermind. Jenny was initially hired to write the questions for The Chase, but chaser Anne Hegerty recommended that she was good enough for the hot seat! How will she fare in the X Factor hot seat though?

THE OVERS: US star Ricki Lake first found fame when she took on the lead role of Tracey Turnblad in the 1988 film Hairspray. She has appeared on lots of TV shows since then and has even had her very own chat show. She'll need to do more than be a good talker to do well in this programme, though!
