The X Factor is pretty much going to be here forever and ever. Hooray!

If you’ve been on social media, you may have seen one or two rumours about The X Factor no longer airing after 2016 due to The Voice joining ITV. But worry not! It has been confirmed today that those rumours are absolutely rubbish and will in fact be making a return after this year’s series. Phew!

oh my god

ITV officials put the rumours to bed by saying that The Voice is simply joining the ITV family. So, two singing competitions a year on ITV? PLUS Britain’s Got Talent?

Yep, BGT is also going nowhere for the next few years. According to an ITV official, “The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent contracts come up for renewal after the latest series air later this year and we fully intend to continue with both shows into 2017 and beyond.”


Phew! We’re glad two of our favourite talent shows are staying put. What else would we watch on a Saturday night?!
