The X Factor rejects The Risk, Kitty Brucknell and Johnny Robinson will be in the money as they join remaining finalists on next year’s tour.

Nine acts will take to the road, calling at 14 different venues from February to April next year for The X Factor 2012 shows.

Wild boy Frankie Cocozza – who was booted out of the show following his alleged drug boasts – was not among the acts announced.

Tickets are already on sale for the shows, which begin on February 25 at Manchester’s MEN Arena.

Also on the tour are Misha B, Janet Devlin, Marcus Collins, Craig Colton, Little Mix and Amelia Lily.

Little Mix are the first girl group to make it through to the tour.

Misha B said: “Last year I was busking on the streets of Manchester and now to be touring around the UK is just sensational.”

Kitty said: “Being on the tour means everything to me, it’s been my dream since I was a little girl to perform somewhere like Wembley or the O2 and now that dream gets to be realised.”
