Simon, Cheryl, Rita & Nick Am looking forward to it. I lost interest in X Factor after the Barlow years despite being a Take That fan. I love Nick but think he will need to tone it down a bit cos he is like Marmite, same with Rita. I think that Nick being a real fan of the show rather than a singer will bring a new dynamic to the show. But I think this will be the series that makes or breaks the future of X Factor.
