The X Factor ‘axed’ by ITV after 17 years
The INDEPENDENT says ITV has said there are “no current plans” to air another series of The X Factor – the talent show that launched the careers of chart-topping artists including One Direction, Little Mix, Olly Murs and Leona Lewis.
The statement came following reports in The Sun that creator Simon Cowell has axed the television music competition programme after 17 years.
The paper, which broke the story, said the programme was being shelved for at least five years and quoted a source as saying The X Factor was “unlikely” to make a comeback.
