Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has said she's got every confidence that a group could win X Factor this year.

The 'Call My Name' singer is mentoring the groups on this year's show, and has already filmed the judges' houses stage of the competition, so she knows who will make live shows.

In a twist, the acts don't find out until a live episode broadcast from Wembley after the judges' houses episodes have been shown. Talk about drama!

Speaking to ITV's This Morning, Cheryl said: I absolutely one hundred percent believe a group could win the X Factor this year… I'm going to whisper to you when the cameras go off!"

Cheryl spoke about choosing her acts from the Six Chair Challenge stage, saying: "This year, for me, was a lot easier than last year...this year, I kind of went in with like, 'OK, if these guys deliver, they are in a chair'."

She filmed judges' houses in Rome, with Jess Glynne as her guest judge. "She has the fastest selling albums of this year, so if you want relevancy, current, I mean one of the most sang songs this season, I think, has been Jess' songs."

While Cheryl is mentoring the groups, Simon Cowell has the overs, Nick Grimshaw has the boys and Rita Ora has the girls.
