Louis is back for the eighth series along with three new judges. Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa take the seats vacated by Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue. Louis admitted that he is a big fan of Gary. “I’ve always been a huge fan of Gary’s so it’s great to work with him, Kelly is a revelation and so passionate, she is definitely competitive so she’ll be the one to watch in the live shows. And I didn’t really know who Tulisa was before but now I feel like I have known her all my life, she’s so real and had an incredible life, I think she’ll be a huge asset to the panel.”
The X Factor returns to ITV 1 this Saturday.
