- Tyne Tees
It's a big weekend for the X-Factor contestants as they reach the quarter finals in this year's competition.
Saltburn's James Arthur will be hoping for even more support than usual, after he narrowly escaped being eliminated last week in one of the biggest shocks in the show's history.
He fell in to the bottom two and as the judges couldn't agree about who should be sent home, it ended up in deadlock, with James surviving over one of the favourite's Ella Henderson.
His family are now campaigning to keep him in the competition and have been speaking to Claire Montgomery.
