According to the Metro, the groups that new judges, Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos, will be mentoring have already been decided.
Take That star Gary will reportedly look after the boys category, with bandmate Robbie Williams rumoured to be helping him whittle down his selection at the judges houses stage.
Kelly is said to be mentoring the girls category with help from her Destiny's Child bandmate Beyonce Knowles.
Louis is set to stay mentor for the over 28s category, which last year resulted in Wagner making the finals.
N-Dubz star Tulisa Contostavlos will be putting her experience as a band member to good use by looking after the groups, the only category that has never produced a winner.
