The X Factor is back on our screens tonight and once again the judging panel is all-change.
Simon Cowell is the only judge returning from last year’s series and he’ll be joined by Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, all of whom have been part of the judging panel on previous series. Also back this year is Dermot O’Leary who is taking back his presenting role after being ousted in favour of Olly Murs and Caroline Flack last year.
The Xtra Factor will also return tonight with former contestant Rylan Clark-Neal taking on presenting duties with Matt Edmondson. They replace last year’s hosts Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom, who only hosted the companion show for one series.
The X Factor returns to ITV tonight at 8pm for the first of two shows this weekend as the hopefuls audition for the judging panel in the hopes of making it through to Bootcamp.
Take a look at the promo shots and behind-the-scenes pictures of the judges, Dermot and The Xtra Factor presenters below:
