The X Factor kicks off this Saturday so for the week that's in it we've decided to dedicate our entire TV podcast to all things X Factor. Simon Cowell has promised to mix things up a huge amount this season so The Guide looks at some of the biggest changes to the show, including new judges, new hosts, and even a new voice-over guy.

We also have a look back at some of the past winners, the successes and failures, and X Factor's 'golden year' of 2010, when the show reached its highest viewing figures and One Direction was launched onto the world.

You can download the podcast here, or watch/listen below.
