Dermot O’Leary has officially launched The X Factor 2016 with a brand new advert.

It comes with hugging, it comes with Wagner and it comes with news that it’s because we asked so nicely that we’re getting the in-room auditions back. Perhaps we should start asking for more? A free trip to Judges’ Houses would be nice wouldn’t it? We all need that. 

Anyway, the point of Dermot’s return to the screen is to tempt singers to the X Factor. It’s what the show’s about after all. 

So if you’ve been too busy singing in front of your mirror to notice the hundreds of other auditions that have happened over the years, now’s your chance to get involved.
