"This is a great, great series," Louis declared. "I'm not just saying that, I'm telling you the truth. The talent is better this year in every category.

"The panel is the best, too by a mile because we all get on well and we're all very different."

Speaking to heat magazine, Louis revealed one act in particular to watch out for: "I do think there's a potential Little Mix there."

Auditions for the new series continue this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.

We're two shows down now and already 16 acts have made the next round in the four categories and they're quite a varied bunch, ranging from boy bands to a stripping Ed Sheeran fan.

Teasing some of the acts to come aside from the potential new Little Mix, host Dermot O'Leary revealed one contestant is a singing monk.

Dermot said: "I was really excited about her! Her audition was off the scale, she was so good. She was singing and then suddenly Simon’s talking about seeing a butterfly come into the room, even though it was at night. It was weird, but she’s spiritual and touched by a higher power, I hope!"

Simon Cowell added: "It sounded better than it was. For about two minutes it was interesting but then suddenly I realised that if I happened to have watched this on another show, I would have watched for about ten seconds."

The X Factor continues on ITV, Saturday & Sunday at 8pm
