Four extra wildcard acts have been added to the X Factor live shows.

Host Dermot O'Leary announced the twist, which had been hotly rumoured all week, at the start of this evening's programme. All four judges were allowed to bring back one act, who they rejected at the Judges' Houses stage, for a second chance.

Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole were filmed visiting their wildcard acts at their homes, where they surprised them with the news.

Cowell brought back camp pop duo Diva Fever in the Groups category, while Louis Walsh offered his wildcard to Wagner Carrilho. Dannii Minogue handed a last chance to cinema worker Paije Richardson and Cheryl Cole gave the last slot on the live shows to Treyc Cohen.

All 16 acts will compete on the live shows, which are now expected to feature double evictions at various points during the series.
