If you have ever thought about auditioning or sought to emulate the success of past contestants from the likes of last year’s winner Ben Haenow to One Direction, Little Mix, Olly Murs or Leona Lewis… now is your time!

The X Factor creator Simon Cowell added, ‘“The X Factor is coming back and, if you think you have the potential to be a world-class star, this is your chance to prove it. You really could be the next pop superstar.”’
