Picture Caption: The multi BAFTA-award winning entertainment show returns to our screens for an explosive eighth series.
This yearâs exciting new judging panel will hit the road and travel the length and breadth of Britain for live auditions with potential singers.
And, for the first time in the showâs history, there will be new opportunities for contestants to enter via Youtube and Facebook (do we want this in?!) as the search for the next singing superstar reaches new levels.
Dermot OâLeary returns to host the proceedings on ITV1 and will be on hand to celebrate with the successful acts and mop up the tears of those who aren’t. And ITV2âs Xtra Factor will be bringing viewers all the behind the scenes gossip, exclusive interviews with the judges and unforgettable auditions that will make you cry with laughter and cheer on the stars of tomorrow.
