‘X Factor' 2015: New Series Gets A Start Date

‘X Factor’ fans, get your diaries ready - the new series of the show has been given a start date.

The first episode of 2015’s series will be aired on Saturday 29 August, and there’s even more good news for fans who can’t wait to see how new judges Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw fare.

The judges

Just 24 hours after the huge, 90-minute launch show, a second episode will be screened on ITV1, at 8pm on Sunday 30 August.

It’s not just the judging panel that’s been given a shake-up this year, and viewers will notice a number of changes.

For 2015, the room auditions have been dropped, and reports suggest the judges’ houses rounds could be screened live.

Thankfully, everyone’s favourite section of the show is staying. Yes, the six-chair challenge isn’t going anywhere. Yay...

The initial ‘X Factor’ 2015 auditions were completed before the summer, and the judges are all currently enjoying some time out before returning to the panel.

Earlier this month, Rita was spotted on a sunshine break in Ibiza, but it’s not all been fun and games for the singer, as she’s now gone back to work, promoting her latest single.

Meanwhile, Simon Cowell has been enjoying some family time, making us all jealous with a series of super-cute family snaps.
