It's a staple of Saturday night viewing in millions of homes across the country - and X Factor is back on ITV this weekend for what will be its 13th series.
Fans can expect the return of some familiar faces - with Dermot O'Leary as host. And the judging panel has had a big shake-up too: Louis and Nicole have both made comebacks.
Meanwhile Simon and Sharon will also be returning, although prior engagements meant they weren't able to make the show's premiere. Matt Price reports.
This weekend, it's the FINAL of ITV's X-factor and, so, this week, the last of the contestants have been 'on the road'.
Today Reggie 'N' Bollie were the stars of Farnborough.
Divya Kohli met the duo in Hampshire today, along with - surprise surprise - their judge.
Reggie 'N' Bollie are visiting Hampshire today - with hundreds of people lining the streets. They're arriving in Reggie's home town with judge and mentor Cheryl.

Reggie and Bollie will be battling it out for a place in the final of the X Factor this weekend. The pair, who are originally from Ghana, live in Hampshire with their families.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is their mentor - and they say she's not just a mentor but "someone who has taken you to your heart."
Now, if you don't know already, it's semi-finals week on the X Factor this weekend. Four acts left: among them Reggie and Bollie, who come from Farnborough in Hampshire.
Are they in the running? It's anyone's guess.
