It Looks Like The X Factor Might Be Sticking Around For Another While

There's been a lot of upheaval in the X Factor universe lately with the departure of Nick Grimshaw, Caroline Flack and Olly Murs but fans of the series will be pleased with this news.

According to The Sun, ITV and Simon Cowell are in talks to create a deal keeping the singing competition on the air until 2019.

The negotiations surrounding the series don't look set to be completed until May, but this puts the rumours that ITV were planning on 'resting' the show to bed.

The negotiations look set to keep Britain's Got Talent on the air too, which is going to enter into its tenth series shortly.

It remains to be seen how the producers of X Factor will try to lure in new viewers, given the relative lack of success and ratings of the most recent series, the winner of which Louise Johnson only sold 39,000 copies of her album.
