The X Factor: The Band

This spin-off series follows up-and-coming girl and boy bands who compete to be crowned Britain's new pop sensation, with Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger returning as judges.

Successful bands from the X Factor franchise in the UK include One Direction, Little Mix and Fifth Harmony.

In total, acts discovered by The X Factor have sold more than 400-million records globally to date.

Now with The X Factor: The Band, the show is bidding to create the next big girl or boyband, in just a matter of weeks.

Simon and Nicole will be joined by a host of music industry stars, including Leona Lewis and Ella Eyre as well as super-producer Naughty Boy.

Host Dermot O'Leary also returns to oversee proceedings - and give his legendary hugs to those auditioning.

The X Factor: The Band goes back to basics in the music business, starting with hopefuls auditioning in Simon's office at Sony HQ in London where they try out in front of Simon, Nicole as well as a panel of advisors.

Those who make it through this stage then face the next big challenge – arena auditions in front of thousands in Birmingham.

Simon and Nicole are joined for this stage by guest judge Leona Lewis, who returns to the show she won in 2006.

The judges will also again be joined by the music industry experts, who – as well as Carla, Naughty, Eddie and Fred also include Ella Eyre, who won a Brit award with Rudimental in 2014 for single Waiting All Night.

It will be here that both the boy and girl band will be created by the judges – before the two groups go head-to-head in a live final to battle to win the prize of a record contract.
