Boot camp is over, which means the next stage in The X Factor process is judges' houses. So, which excotic locations are the judges flying off to this time?
According to The Sun, Nicole Scherzinger will take the girls to Antigua, the boys will take a short trip to the South of France with Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and the groups are headed for New York City, and Sharon Osbourne will put the overs through their paces in Los Angeles.
Details have also been revealed about who each judge will have along side them as a guest mentor.
Louis Walsh is thought to be taking two helpers with him, Kelly Osbourne and ex-Westlife star Shane Filan. Gary is asking for assistance from X Factor's own Olly Murs, and Nicole Scherzinger is calling on pal Mary J Blige. Sharon's choice remains a mystery for now.
"Once again the bosses have pulled out all the stops and have chosen some glamorous locations for judges' houses," confirms a source.
Excellent, vicarious holidays are almost as good as the real thing. Almost.
