Louisa Johnson to perform new single So Good on X Factor next week

Louisa Johnson will perform on The X Factor 2016 next Sunday.

The reigning champ from last year's series will return to the show a year to the date that she made her live debut in 2015.

The news follows Louisa confirming her brand new single called So Good will be available on Friday, October 28.

Louisa tweeted last night to announce the song: "SO DAMN EXCITED to announce my brand new single 'So good' will be out FRIDAY! 28.10.16 😬⚡️😈💅🏼🙌🏼!!!!!!!! #SoGood"

She added: "Buzzing to be back on @TheXFactor next sunday with my new track! ⚡️#Sogood"

According to music insiders, Louisa's new song has had to be censored after originally containing "explicit lyrics"

"Senior staff at Syco were shocked at her use of the F-word in the chorus," a source told The Sun newspaper.

They claimed: “In the original version, she sang ‘f*** it’ but the line has been replaced with something more innocent."

Louisa will be the third X Factor winner to appear on this year's show, following James Arthur and Little Mix.

The trio are the only winners from the past 12 series still signed by Simon Cowell, but can Louisa match Little Mix and James' recent success?

The pair have just had back-to-back number ones and if Louisa can do the same it'd mean The X Factor has held the UK Number 1 single for over a month.

The X Factor 2016 airs next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM with its Halloween special.

Louisa's song So Good is out on Friday.
