When is the new 2015 series of The X Factor UK expected to begin?
With season 11 now all wrapped up, thoughts now shift to the next series. Each year the competition traditionally hits TV screens in late August, premiering on one of the last two Saturday’s of the month.
With this in mind, fans of the reality show should expect The X Factor 2015 start date to be set for Saturday the 22nd or Saturday the 29th of August.
Long before that though, auditions will get underway around the country, looking for Britain’s next singing superstar.
When it comes to judges, Simon Cowell will almost certainly be back for his second series since returning from the US version of the show. If reports are to be believed, the boss will be joined once again on the panel by ex-Spice Girl Mel B.
Less certain to retake their seats on the judging panel in 2015 (though still likely) are Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and the (to date) ever present Louis Walsh. Should either of the pair fail to comeback in the summer, the door could then be open for former judge Tulisa or, dare we say, a new male judge?
