  • The X Factor: Celebrity/The Band



    Louis Walsh has revealed that three former X Factor winners will appear in the upcoming All Stars series of the talent show.


    The music manager and regular X Factor judge said he was flying out to Los Angeles this week to kick off filming for the celebrity version of the singing competition, which is expected to air later this year.


    "I go to Simon’s house in Malibu, it’s me Simon [Cowell] and Nicole [Scherzinger] and we’re doing the celebrity one," he told The Mirror, also confirming Nicole is returning to the judging panel.


    He continued: "It’s going to be great, and then we do the 'best of' all in one week, all the winners are coming back. Leona's coming back, Alexandra, Shayne, they’re all coming back."


    Leona won the 2006 series of the competition, Alexandra triumphed in 2008 after a show-stopping duet with Beyonce, and Shayne won in 2005. All landed the Official Christmas Number 1 in their respective years with their winner's singles.


    Celebrities rumoured to be appearing on the show include Gemma Collins, journalist Martin Bashir and several Love Island contestants, who may be joining forces to form a group.
    I reckon these will the two most enjoyable series of the show in years, it’s dead in its usual format and Nicole and Louis coming back is good news.

        Now this looks worth watching. It's crazy how in the US, these 'Celebrity editions' are the norm for absolutely every single show.

          I feel as if the All Stars series especially will be quite short - I wonder if it’ll be every night over a week or so instead of every weekend? I’d be gutted if someone amazing went out early doors.

            Nicole has a lot on her plate at the moment, She's also doing our latest revival of Australia's Got Talent, which should be starting soon, I think the live portion will be over in about 3-4 weeks though, the last season in 2016 was quickly over in about a month and a half from memory of the wiki page IIRC too.

              Simon has decided to scrap the old theme tune and wants each new series to have it's own theme. Seems pointless.

              The Sun are reporting that Gemma Collins and Arg, Ricki Lake, Vinnie Jones, Megan McKenna, Brendan Cole, Ben Foden, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and a Love Island super-group are amongst those rumoured for the celeb version.

                I knew Gemma would be on this before I saw it. Willy Moon and Natalia Kills should audition for Australian Idol.

                  Let's hope she doesn't start playing with her scratch n' sniff card again though. *puke*

                    I cannot wait for these shows!

                    Leona has this sewn up though before it's even started.

                      I wouldn't count out the like of Alexandra. It might not be a one horse race. It all depends on the other contestants. I am so excited for both though!

                            I feel like there’s never going to be enough public goodwill towards Alexandra for her to ever win one of these shows again - I mean she was the best in the SCD final...

                            Depends on if Leona can pull out a show-stopping vocal - it’ll be interesting to see how they do the song choices, will it be a mix of their material and old classics? I can imagine Alexandra doing Whitney for obvious reasons and I’d love a reprise of Summertime for Leona.

                              Imagine if they got Beyoncé back to perform with her. Could they recreate the magic the original performance has?

                                With her wax statue being pulled because she isn't important anymore maybe Cheryl should compete also? Nicole too. When was the last time she had new music?

                                    Why do you expect professional talent competition judge/coach Nicole to release music? She is busy with Australia Got Talent, The Masked Singer and XFactor. I just want new Yoghurt commercials.

                                      You are right. I don't know what I was thinking.

                                        Nice, maybe Leona will score another hit after she wins this. But will then probably fall back into oblivion

                                          If Leona manages to have at least one more hit single under her belt, i'll be more than happy with that.

                                          Also @Thriller that photo of Simon Cowell should only be shown on halloween. Facelift fail?

                                            Simon’s face is scary AF.

                                            I always felt like he’d become the male Joan Rivers one day.

                                                He looks almost Hispanic and his eyes look upside down.

                                                The Sun reckon this is what he would look like without any surgery (I doubt he’d look quite so old)

                                                  It’s crazy to think he’s 60 this year - he has been so omnipresent in British television since I was in my early teens that it hasn’t ever really computed in my mind that he’d be 60.
