There's good news for X Factor fans as ITV bosses have confirmed there will be a second series of the show.

Judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne are also in talks about signing up for the new series.

The Pop Idol-style talent show votes off a group or contestant every week - the two that get lowest public vote have to perform again for the judges.

The final of the first series takes place on 11 December. Three contestants and one group will fight it out.

"Working on the X Factor has been a blast... I predict series two will be even better," said Simon Cowell.

"I think the production team have done an amazing job," he added.
