It’s almost time for The X Factor to make its return to the UK later this summer (no firm return date has been announced), and it looks like the show has finalized hosting duties for its online portion. The new digital presenter for The X Factor will be Roman Kemp, who is probably best known as the son of Martin Kemp (bassist of Spandau Ballet) and Shirlie Holliman (former backing singer of Wham!). He will be handling hosting duties for all of the online content from the hit competition show.
This year marks a reason to be more interested in the show, as well. The judges set to present this year are Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh, and of course, Simon Cowell. All have hosted previously, but this marks the return of Scherzinger after a small break from judging duties. Auditions took place July 1st in Dublin, the first time the show has been there in five years.
There is likely lots of excitement surrounding The X Factor, and you can probably expect to see The X Factor betting at William Hill throughout the competition. It is no surprise that shows like this see a lot of betting and a lot of competition as people try to guess who the next big star will be. The X Factor will air on ITV later this year.
