A return date for The X Factor has yet to be revealed, but recent years have seen the launch episode fall in the last week of August or first week of September. Therefore, expect the show to return either on Saturday 25th August or Saturday 1st September.
As soon as we have the date and time confirmed, we’ll be updating this page.
Who are The X Factor judges?
Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger have been axed, and the new-look line up for 2018 includes Robbie Williams, Ayda Field, Louis Tomlinson and Simon Cowell.
Back in the day, it was tradition for X Factor to finish the week before Christmas. This meant that the winner would release their single, everyone would buy it and they’d pretty much be guaranteed the festive Number 1 spot in the charts.
Now? Not so much. Last year, the show had its earliest ever finish with the live final falling on Sunday 3rd December. It remains to be seen how long ITV decide to keep the show in the schedules this year…

Who’s presenting The X Factor?
Host Dermot O’Leary is again returning to the ITV show. The longstanding presenter was dropped in 2015 in favour of Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, but was swiftly reinstated the following year and – thank goodness – has been helming the show ever since.
