X Factor hopefuls Overload and Lola Saunders both lost out on a place in the live shows, but have they now been given a second chance as wildcards?

Thanks to eagle-eyed viewers and eager paps, it seems two of the four wildcards expected to make a return during this weekend's live shows have already been rumbled.

And rumour has it, it will be boyband Overload and 20-year-old Lola Saunders taking to the stage!

X Factor's Overload during Boot Camp


Since the X Factor finalists moved into their plush London pad last week, both Overload and Lola have been spotted around the house.

According to the Mail Online, four out of the five Overload boys were seen getting into a car outside the X Factor digs.

The band were seen leaving the competition during bootcamp. Originally given a seat by mentor Louis Walsh, Overload were then swapped out, but determined to defend their seat they pushed for a sing-off.

In the sing-off the boys took on The Pow Wow Girls and the New Girl Group - who were originally sent home by Louis after their performance. Following the sing-off, Louis picked the New Girl Group to take through to Judges' Houses with him.

In the past, wildcards have been chosen from those who made it to Judges' Houses but didn't make the live shows. But, with Overload leaving the competition at bootcamp, does this mean wildcards can be taken from any point in the show?!

To choose the wildcards, each judge will pick a returning act for another judge and appearing on Loose Women earlier this week, Louis revealed he had chosen Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's act and Cheryl his.

If the rumours are true, this would mean Cheryl has picked Overload for Louis and Louis has chosen Lola for her - as Lola was also spotted inside the X Factor house this week!

Is this Lola walking past the girls in the X Factor house??

On Sunday (5 October), eagle-eyed viewers spotted Lola in the background during a scene filmed at the pad for The Xtra Factor.

While Cheryl's girls - Chloe Jasmin, Lauren Platt and Stephanie Nala - were sat around a piano, Lola could be seen passing by a doorway behind them.

After being turned away by Cheryl after her Judges' Houses performance in Nice, has Lola bagged herself a second shot on the show?

Joining Cheryl's girls in the live shows as finalists already are Simon's overs - Ben Haenow, Fleur East, Jay James, Mel B's boys - Paul Akister, Andrea Faustini, Jake Quickenden and Louis' groups - Only The Young, Blonde Electra and the New Boy Band.
