Every year, the producers behind the X Factor do their best to shake things up on this show, and this year is no different. 

Big changes are coming to the show for the upcoming season. 

One thing that isn't changing is the judging panel. Simon, Louis, Sharon and Nicole will all return. Alesha Dixon will appear in some stages, as she's been filling in for Sharon while she recovered from a back injury. 

According to The Sun, the biggest change will be in the audition and live show stages. The venues for the auditions have changed - some will be in Thorpe Park. 

The number of live shows will be cut from ten to six, and contestants will be voted off on Saturday AND Sunday nights. 

The show returns later this year.
