It's week four of the live shows and the contestants will be performing songs to do with 'Love & Heartbreak' The X Factor UK / Twitter

Prepare to hear some ballads! This week's theme on The X Factor live shows is 'Love & Heartbreak' which will see the contestants picking songs about a whole array of subjects, from first dates to break-ups.

Last week was a particularly crucial one for the contestants as those who got through the third week would officially be part of the line-up for The X Factor Tour 2016, following this series' conclusion. Wild card Monica Michael and Max Stone just missed out on making the cut, however X Factor revealed on their official Facebook page earlier this week that they will bring one act back to complete the line-up. The lucky contestant has yet to be announced.

The Boys - Judge: Nick Grimshaw

Ché Chesterman will be singing Yesterday by The Beatles whilst show bad boy Mason Noise is set to perform Nick Jonass' hit single Jealous.
