The X Factor judges are set to remain the same for the 2017 series, it's been revealed.

2016 saw Simon Cowell joined on the panel by Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh in the latest shake up to the show.


The judges line up on The X Factor hasn't stayed the same for more than a year since between 2008 and 2010 when Simon and Louis were joined by Dannii Minogue and Cheryl Cole.

But - if Simon gets his way - Sharon, Louis and Nicole will all be back next series.

Talking about The X Factor - and sister show Britain's Got Talent - Simon said he had no plans to make any changes.

He told The Sun newspaper: “I don’t think for the moment we’d want to make any changes.

“It worked on X Factor last year and the Britain’s Got Talent panel works really well."

As yet, ITV have not officially confirmed any names for the new series of The X Factor.


However speaking ahead of last series' final, Louis declared: "Yes, I'm back next year. I've signed for the next two years."

Sharon's return is also on the cards, despite US work commitments.

“Sharon looks like she is returning to the X Factor, and has been telling people that it is a done deal," a source told the Daily Mirror newspaper.

They added of a supposed £2 million deal: “She will film the auditions in the summer, and then jet to and from London for the live shows."

Meanwhile, host Dermot O'Leary has also confirmed he'll definitely be back in 2017 having signed a multi-year deal with ITV.


The X Factor will return to ITV in the autumn of 2017.

Britain's Got Talent will be back on ITV this Saturday night for series 11 at 8PM.
