The X Factor has been dropped, confirms ITV


Broadcaster ITV has confirmed there are “no current plans” for another series of The X Factor.

Earlier the show’s creator Simon Cowell said he’d axed the programme after 17 years.


The X Factor was last on air in 2018.

It’s said the show is being “rested” for at least five years.

An ITV statement said:

“There are no current plans for the next series of The X Factor at this stage.”

The programme was first seen in 2004.

It helped launch the careers of chart-topping artists including One Direction, Little Mix, Olly Murs and Leona Lewis.
