The X Factor Competition
The kids are heading back to school, which means that it's time for the X Factor to return to our screens again. The 2017 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, as does Sharon Osbourne, alongside stalwart Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger. The judging panel have been out and about across the UK recording auditions to bring us up to date with progress so far, along with bootcamp and judge's house's phase complete, we're up to live shows for the run into the festive season.
The latest competition has another big cash prize of £50,000, a Jeep and X Factor tour tickets up for grabs! Here's the information you need:

Each draw usually features on the show several times, usually alternating week by week with another competition. The prizes are often 'money can't buy' style opportunities, for example trips to see in demand artists perform abroad. Of course, there's usually a big cash prize and sometimes a car too to be won!
