Reports claim that former Islanders Zara McDermott, Eyal Booker, Wes Nelson and Samira Mighty are set to team up to sing in the competition.

Former Love Islander Georgia Steele revealed to the Daily Star: "I think they looked at Love Island and had auditions for a few people. They got picked because they have the best voices."

The X Factor typically begins in September on ITV but scheduling details for 2019 have yet to be confirmed.
