The kids are heading back to school, which means that it's time for the X Factor to return to our screens again. The 2018 season kicks off with a longer than usual run of auditions, before the nights draw in, it gets colder, and Simon Cowell's biggest show moves to live shows, so the run in to the Christmas number one race is well under way.

Simon returns this year, alongside a shaken up judging panel comprising of Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams and Ayda Field. The judges have been out and about across the UK recording auditions to bring us up to date with progress so far, ready for the upcoming bootcamp and judge's house's phase to complete, ahead of live shows for the run into the festive season.
