The X Factor 2015... The Countdown Begins

What an amazing year for Team Midas. We championed and promoted the current Voice winner, Stevie McCrorie and of course our X Factor champion, Ben Haenow. ...12 months on, we start again and so does our search for that elusive X Factor winning double.

Sadly this year, we won't be welcoming back presenter 'Dancing' Dermot O'Leary, or our favourite booming voiceover man, Peter Dickson. Xtra Factor presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford has said farewell and so too have judges Mel B & Louis Walsh. It's all change for 2015.

So who do we say hello too? Well firstly, of course, the awesome, amazing boss man, Sir Simon Cowell is back to take his place, at the head of the panel. So too is our North East Princess, Cheryl. New to the line up is Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw. Rita did a great job on The Voice and I am hearing good things about Nick. I wish them all well.

I am looking forward to Olly Murs & Caroline Flack presenting the main show and Melvin Odoom and Rochelle Humes running the new Xtra Factor ship.

Let us reflect quickly on 2014. Our X Factor Team Midas acts were Lola Saunders (10th), Only The Young (7th) and of course Mr Ben Haenow, the current X Factor champion. Who do we have this year? Well Goldfingers, you will find out soon enough.

If any of the X Factor judges need some help at judges houses, then I can of course make myself available. I quite fancy Florida. Anyone? Team Midas' Reality TV PR & Promotion CV, contains Leona Lewis, One Direction, Cher Lloyd, the winners of BGT in 2012 & 2013 and the current Voice & X Factor winners. Come on Simon, what more do I have to do?

I have a very, very good feeling about this, the 12th year of The X Factor. I think the audience will grow and grow, the shocks will come thick and fast The 2015 champion will be a solo singer, girl or boy. As for Team Midas, anything less than a place at the Final, will be a huge disappointment.

Once the show starts, my life is dominated, (apart from my lovely family) by three words, The X Factor. So I am going to enjoy this upcoming weekend because the X Factor juggernaut is back and back and it's going to be back with a bang.
