The X Factor categories revealed: which judge gets which?

The X Factor is changing things up for series 12 and one of the biggest changes is the way the show decides the categories for each judge. This year, the public voted on Twitter and the results have just been announced.

It's a case of deja vu for Simon Cowell. The Syco boss will mentor the overs again after leading Ben Haenow and Fleur East to the final last series. New judge Rita Ora, meanwhile, will mentor the girls when the show reaches judges' houses.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini will lead the groups in a potentially interesting switch-up for the former Girls Aloud member. And Nick Grimshaw will guide the boys in the live finals.

What do you think of the result?
