This year’s series of ‘X Factor’ could look a lot more like ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, as it’s being claimed that bosses are giving the show a huge shakeup.

It’s fair to say that ‘X Factor’, which has been on our screens since 2004, has struggled in recent years, and Simon Cowell reportedly thinks he has the perfect plan to get viewers tuning in again.

The new plans will also be a big help for the judges, especially Sharon who has a particularly busy schedule.

'BGT' has continued to be one of the most popular shows on television 

A spokesperson for the show hasn’t denied or confirmed the reports, and told the paper: “No decisions have been made about the new series.

“Discussions are ongoing and details will be announced in due course.”  

It’s been a tough few years for the ‘X Factor’, suffering losses in the ratings stakes to shows including ‘Countryfile’.

It’s not yet clear which judges will be back this year, and Sharon recently cast doubts over whether she will be making a return, as recent health problems mean she may need back surgery.
