ITV's landmark talent show The X Factor will return to its original judges this year after nine different incarnations of the panel.
Season one judges Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, and Louis Walsh will also be joined by former judge Nicole Scherzinger as season 13 begins filming on 10th June.
Scherzinger and Osbourne have not appeared on The X Factor since season 10, when Osbourne won with her act Sam Bailey. Louis Walsh was absent from last year's panel after an unbroken 12-year stint.
"He’d say otherwise but I knew Simon missed me last year!" Said Walsh of his hiatus from the show. "I’m delighted to be back on the panel, especially beside my two favourite female judges, Sharon and Nicole, and I’m looking forward to taking them all back to Dublin this year when we head there for auditions.”
The new series will also reprise other old elements of the show, including the audition rooms, and see the return of Dermot O'Leary as the show's host since previous X Factor winner Olly Murs took over hosting duties with presenter Caroline Flack.
Cowell said of the new series: “Be careful what you wish for!”
