The hotly anticipated 8th series of the X Factor UK kicked off in explosive fashion last night. With the theme very much centred on “out with the old, in with the new”, all eyes and ears were on the judging panel’s three new additions – Kelly Rowland, N Dubz‘s Tulisa Costastavlos, and Take That‘s Gary Barlow.
Early figures suggest the new line-up has been a hit. For, last night’s show recorded the highest ratings yet for the launch of any X Factor (UK) series yet – 12.6 million tuning in (and ITV1 boasting a 51% audience share).
However, as ever, we’re keen to hear what YOU think. How did the new additions do? Do you miss Simon, Cheryl, or Danni? Vote below and drop your two pence!
