Announcing The X Factor’s new Band spin-off on Monday, Simon Cowell said: “K-Pop is ruling the world. This is a show to find a band to launch UK-Pop. It’s more than winning a record contract, it’s starting a new music wave.

“Every group will be put together by us — just like One Direction, Little Mix and Fifth Harmony. It’s people who represent Britain’s version of K-Pop.”

The series will air towards in December on ITV, replacing a previously planned X Factor All Stars series.

The judges for the new series have yet to be confirmed, with reports suggesting the line up on the panel will be different to the current celebrity series which stars Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh alongside Simon.
