It's baaaacck!! Even though we all say we don't care anymore, you know we'll still be watching. Especially since the Lord of the Manor himself Simon Cowell has returned as a judge, along with his Geordie sidekick Cheryl... yeah, we still don't know her new last name. They will be joined by Scary Spice Mel B and our own Louis Walsh - there's no getting rid of that fella. The first of the auditions begins tonight with the minimum age now being reduced to 14. Ah here, they're only childers! Still though, we'd say Simon is frothing at the mouth to find another One Direction.
