X Factor UK Auditions 2016 Online Application, Venue And Details

X Factor UK is reality TV singing competition show created by Simon Cowell. The show consists of singing auditions, bootcamp, judges' houses, several weeks of live shows, semi-finals and the final. The winner of 2014 season was Ben Haenow.

Will There Be X Factor UK 2016?

The latest series of X Factor UK 2015 has suffered rating drop and executive producer Richard Holloway thinks the show deserves some rest to comeback again stronger as reported by Billboard here.

"[X Factor] will have a finite life span. But I think you then rest it, then you bring it back," Richard said.

"As long as we produce the show to a standard, which the public really, really wants to see... then there is no reason why we can't produce it for years and years and years.

"I think it could run for many, many years. It's our most profitable show," he added.

So this rises a question will there be X Factor 2016 or not? Well, we have to hope for the best and wait for official update on X Factor 2016.


Simon Cowell confirms the show will continue for another decade.  As reported by Dailystar, He said "I wouldn’t worry about the future of X Factor. We are going to be fine. If we are sitting here in 10 years' time then we will have a very large celebration.

"If you said to any broadcaster now, 'Would you like to rest a show that is doing 10million or 11million every week?', they would say, 'You are out of your mind'. They would never allow that to happen."

And even if it did, he warns: "This would not be a difficult show to put anywhere now. It brings in a very passionate and loyal audience."

X Factor 2016 Judges:

The expected judges for the 2016 season of  X Factor UK are Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Louis Walsh. The current 2015 season is judged by Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick, Grimshaw and Rita Ora.

As per reports, Louis Tomlinson will be on judging panel of show 2016. Louis said: "I've handed my CV to Simon for next year's show, so we will see how it goes. It's definitely something I am thinking about."

"I am the biggest X Factor fan and I would love to be there week in, week out and really give that level of passion. I think I would be a decent judge." he added.

An insider said: "The producers wanted to see how Louis coped during Judges' Houses in France. He passed with flying colours.Louis shook hands on the deal informally and it's now all systems go for next year."

Talking about Louis as a judge in X Factor 2016 Simon Cowell said, "Louis is a great kid. In the middle of doing a stadium tour one night in front of 80,000 people, 'Can I be a judge on X Factor? I don’t know if his schedule would allow it... otherwise 100 per cent."
