It's always one of the best parts of the show as a viewer: watching the contestants reactions as they learn whereabouts in the world they'll be jetting off to once they've made it through bootcamp.
We've seen uber luxurious and exotic locations in the past including Los Angeles, Bermuda, New York, Dubai and Mexico. So, where are the judges off to this year?!
Well, as previously reported, it's believed Nick will be taking the boys to, um, Oldham, Manchester. Not that there is anything wrong with Manchester! But we're wondering if there may be a few of his boys that are a tad disappointed they're not off somewhere more exotic…
A source told the Sunday People that Nick had to opt for a local destination because of his Radio 1 Breakfast Show commitments, which mean he's needed at the studio in London every weekday morning.
"They've plumped for Greater Manchester as Nick grew up in Oldham and the area's close to his heart. It's lovely but not exactly what the boys will be expecting," added the insider.
Cheryl is said to be taking the groups to Rome, Italy which is a venue we haven't seen on the show before. Rita, meanwhile, is taking her girls to Los Angeles, which is no surprise given how much time she spends in the city!
According to The Sun, head judge Simon is mulling over taking his overs to France. A source said he's asked X Factor producers to scout him an uber glamorous location in the Loire Valley fit for royalty. Ooh la la!
