It’s that time of year again where it’s time to face the music. That’s right, The X Factor is making its almighty return and it has finally been revealed when the new series will start.
The news broke yesterday that the 12th series of the show will start next Saturday, August 29th at 8pm on ITV. We’re very very excited.
Of course that’s not all we have to be excited about as the show has been completely revamped this year with a new judging line-up and brand new hosts. It was a sad time when we heard Dermot O’Leary was no longer presenting the show. However, when we learned that our favourite Essex chap, Olly Murs and his lovely partner in crime, Caroline Flack are due to be this years hosts, our excitement definitely heightened again.
Then obviously came the long awaited announcement for the new judging panel and returning this year are two of our all time favourite judges, the main man himself Mr Simon Cowell and the nation’s sweetheart Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. Two spots were left a mystery on the panel until we learned that the two newbies were going to be none other than singing sensation Rita Ora and BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw.
We think the new panel is going to be very interesting and we’re excited to see what Rita and Grimmy will bring to the show. Rita has previously showed off her impressive judging skills on The Voice UK, so it will great to see her in action on The X Factor. Of course, it’s a well-known fact that everyone loves Grimmy and he might not be a singer himself but he definitely as an eye (or should I say ear) for what sounds good on radio.
The Xtra Factor even have new hosts as Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom have filled the roles for the ITV2 show.
So The X Factor is coming, will you be tuning in to see what the new line-up is like?
The X Factor returns Saturday 29th August 2015 at 8pm on ITV and the second episode shall follow on Sunday 30th August 2015, 8pm on ITV.
