X Factor 2014 first look! Watch Cheryl Cole cry at auditions

Here's a first look at The X Factor 2014 ahead of its telly premiere later this month.

The X Factor 2014 start date has yet to be confirmed but ITV are already shaping up for its return.

This sneak peek at the channel's TV line up over the next months features brief glimpses of the auditions, from the acts to Cheryl's tears.

But it's not just The X Factor - with its new line up of judges - hitting ITV and ITV2 this autumn.

There's also new dramas Grantchester, starring James Norton and Robson Green, Cilla starring Sheridon Smith and The Great Fire, starring Andrew Buchan, Rose Leslie, Charles Dance, Danny Mays and Jack Huston.

And of course alongside The X Factor, Downton Abbey returns for what will be its fifth series.

Meanwhile and over on ITV2 award winning Plebs, starring Joel Fry, Tom Rosenthal and Ryan Sampson, returns alongside The Job Lot now in its second series lead by Russell Tovey and Sarah Hadland.

But TOWIE has been ditched and will instead air on its own special channel, ITVBe, which launches in October.
