The endless speculation is over: Simon Cowell has FINALLY revealed who will be judging The X Factor 2017.
Returning to the ITV talent competition alongside Simon will be three of its all-time most popular judges: Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne.
In the exact same line-up as last year, Simon confirmed that 2016's foursome will be back ahead of the judge's auditions, which start later this year.
Speaking to The Sun, Simon said: "I don't think for the moment we'd want to make any changes.
"It worked on X Factor last year and the Britain's Got Talent panel works really well."
He added: "There's always room to come up with new ideas for shows but you've got to look at the whole landscape.
"It's a crowded market but there's always room for something new if it's a good idea."
Louis and Sharon made up the original X Factor judging panel with Simon 13 years ago, while Nicole has appeared on both the US and UK panels.
Nicole cast doubt on whether she'd return to the ITV reality show after she wanted to return to music, but it looks like she's back on board.
The X Factor returns to ITV later in the year.
