The 12th series of The X Factor gets on the way in August and their will be a number of changes to the long running ITV show in a bit to win back viewers.
The first change is in the judging panel line-up: Out goes Scary Spice Mel B. and veteran judge Louis Walsh and in comes new judges Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw.
The next change is the host of the show: Out goes Dermot O’Leary who is replaced by not one but two presenters, Olly Murs and Caroline Flack.
Next up is the auditions format: Out goes the closed room auditions leaving only the arena auditions before bootcamp.
There is also expected to be changes to the Judges Houses format with the show being aired live but this is yet to be confirmed.
Finally, with the UK hosting the Rugby World cup this year there will be fewer live shows.
