The X Factor Live Tour for 2013 has been announced and will see the seven finalists including Ella Henderson and Rylan Clark heading out on the road.

James Arthur, Jahmene Douglas, Christopher Maloney, Union J and District 3 will also be performing some of the tracks that they have performed so far in the live shows on the ITV1 talent competition.

Speaking about the upcoming annual tour, 16-year-old Ella said: "I cannot believe that at only 16 I have not only had the amazing opportunity and experience of appearing on X Factor I am now fulfilling a dream by taking part in an arena tour."

Union J, who have been touted as this year's One Direction, say they're excited to meet their fans personally. "We cannot wait to go on The X Factor Live Tour and meet all the fans and thank them personally for all their support."

Meanwhile, husky-voiced James Arthur added: "A year ago I was busking in the street and playing in my local pub so knowing that next year I’ll be performing at arenas is totally mind blowing, I can't wait."

The tour will be kicking off on January 27 and will see the contestants travel up and down the UK visiting Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, London's O2 Arena and other cities before ending on 27th February in Belfast.

The show has been riddled with controversy this year, including the fix scandal with judges forcing the vote to go to deadlock for four weeks and former hopeful Lucy Spraggan missing a live show due to an illness, eventually having to leave the competition.
