The X Factor is back on our screens and that is our weekends sorted until Christmas.

A judging panel of familiar faces have been brought back to oversee proceedings, with Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger all returning to the table.

Host Dermot O’Leary is also back at the helm after a year away when he was replaced by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack and fans at home are so excited by all the blasts from the past.

So excited #XFactor is on and Sharon & Louis are back. Saturday nights sorted for me now!
