The X Factor judges 2018

Although it seems like The X Factor has just got underway, the date of the live final has already been confirmed.


And, for the second year in a row, it’s going to be incredibly early.

This year the final for series 15 has been confirmed for Saturday 1st December 2018.

That’s not dissimilar from last year, when the final aired on the same weekend. However, before last year it had been a tradition for The X Factor final to fall a week or two before Christmas, giving the winner a shot at the festive Number 1.

The X Factor features a brand new judging panel this year. Alongside familiar face Simon Cowell is former Take That star and friend of the show Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda Field and One Direction star Louis Tomlinson.


The X Factor continues Saturdays and Sundays on ITV.
