You can practically set your entire calendar by The X-Factor and just like clockwork the talent show is set to return to ITV this September. But who is judging X-Factor this year? Will Dermot be back? Here is everything you need to know about X-Factor 2017…

The X Factor trailer

The first trailer for X Factor 2017 has arrived and it will take you on a nice trip down memory lane. Dermot O’Leary goes all ‘cultural’ on us in the montage advert, by reading a poem about the show. The dulcet tones of Dermot are joined by the appearance of many similar faces, including Little Mix, One Direction, Olly Murs and even Rylan. However blink and you will miss Matt Terry, last year’s winner, completely. Awkward.

What’s the X Factor 2017 start date?

You can carry on with your Saturday night plans as usual for the time being as ITV are yet to release a specific date for the X-Factor’s return. However you can expect that talent show will begin – like many years before – on the last weekend of August.

Who are the 2017 X Factor judges?

In a complete shock Simon Cowell has kept the same judging panel as last year. In recent times the judging panel has been like a version of musical chairs with Cheryl coming and going and Nick Grimshaw along with Rita Ora being one series wonders.

This year Simon Cowell will be heading up the judging panel along with Louis Walsh (classic), Sharon Osborne and the first mistress of sass, Nicole Scherzinger. However there will be a guest appearance from Britain’s Got Talent judge, Alesha Dixon. The Mis-Teeq lady kept Nicole’s seat warm whilst the Pussycat Doll recovered from a back injury whilst the filming of the auditions took place.

What a day! Thanks for having me @thexfactor 😘

However Cheryl could make a return to the show as rumours are spiralling that the singer will make her public return from maternity leave at the judges houses stage, supporting Simon Cowell as a guest judge. YES!

The X Factor 2017 Format

After last year’s weird jukebox format where the theme for the following week was selected live on air, Simon has vowed to rid the X Factor of unnecessary paraphernalia in 2017.

Speaking to The Sun, Simon said, “all these crazy thing we used to do with the themes have gone, no more jukeboxes, none of that rubbish this year. The public are smart enough to know what’s real, that’s what we are focusing on this year.” Don’t worry team, I am sure the sob stories will still be there, in full force and the brutal six-seat challenge will be back.

Who are the X Factor presenters?

Dermot O’Leary returns to the X Factor for the second year running after his infamous ‘sacking.’ However he will be the only presenter on set this year after the Xtra Factor was axed after last year’s series.

‘The X-Factor’ returns to ITV1 this autumn.
