We have literally no idea how it's come round so quickly, but as of this Saturday (August 27th, date fans) we're scrapping all weekend socialising in favour of watching The X Factor surrounded by a plethora of snacks. Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger are back on our tellyboxes sorting out the wannabes from the proper popstars; which means a) summer's officially over and b) we're ready to find a great new girl band please.
So we toddled along to the fancy X Factor red carpet launch event thingy for a chinwag with the judges (well, Louis), new backstage boy Roman Kemp and The Xtra Factor's Matt Edmondson and Rylan to get all the goss from this new series.
Basically it involves an 'old human doll' and some uncooked chicken. Your standard series of The X Factor then, really. Let's 'ave a look what went down:
So there you go.
Thoughts on all that, then? Gonna be watching The X Factor at 8pm on Saturday 27th August (and Sunday 28th)? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape and don't forget to like us on Facebook while you're at it. Cheers, love.
