The X Factor returns to television screens tomorrow evening and the nation’s favourite judges are back for an action-packed few months of tears, excitement, drama and some singing.
What some people love most about the show is the judges – their bickering squabbles, their fashion choices, their catchphrases. It makes for entertaining television.

Following a break, the popular Dermot O’Leary made a successful return to ITV’s flagship Saturday evening show in 2016 and he is back again this time round.
Who is on the judging panel for the X Factor
There was heavy speculation that the judging panel would undergo a shake-up. However, for the first time since 2010, the X Factor panel has remained unchanged from the previous series.
Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh are all returning following their time together last season.
Alesha Dixon has also stood in for both Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger during the auditions.
