X Factor axed: Simon Cowell says goodbye to the show that gave us Harry Styles, Little Mix – and AbLisa

The i says I can’t be the only person surprised to hear The X Factor has been axed by overlord Simon Cowell and ITV? Not because it’s unmissable, exhilarating television, but because I thought it had been laid to rest years ago. According to ITV, there are “no current plans for the next series at this stage” news that has become fairly obvious given the most recent series aired in 2018. That was won by Dalton Harris. Who? I don’t know either.

Those of us with any appreciation for our own time – and, frankly, sanity – have not tuned into a full series of the singing competition since 2014, when (somehow) Ben Haenow won over Fleur East. The viewing figures show that X Factor peaked in 2010, when the series averaged 14.13 million viewers and introduced the world to One Direction. The numbers have dwindled year on year; that 15th, final series brought in under 6.19million (some episodes were watched by so few people, they weren’t even counted).
