If you've been holding off on submitting your X Factor 2018 video application for whatever reason, now may be the time to change that.

Because for the first time in the show's history, The X Factor is offering this year's hopefuls the chance to sing during a one-off special performance, supporting last year's X Factor stars on the official X Factor tour.

Anyone who applies for the show between Tuesday, February 13 (that's today) and Friday, March 2 will not only be submitting themselves for a chance to appear on 2018's show, but one act will also be chosen by producers to sing an opening support song during the final date of this year's tour in Brighton on Sunday, March 4 too.

The opportunity is open to all acts, groups or solo singers aged 14 and above, and all you have to do is apply either with an online video entry or by sending a video message to The X Factor's WhatsApp on 07733 222 927.

This year's X Factor tour kicks off in Belfast on Friday (February 16) and will feature 2017 winners Rak-Su, alongside runner-up Grace Davies and fellow finalists Kevin Davy White, Lloyd Macey, The Cutkelvins, Matt Linen and public-picked Wild Card act Sean and Conor Price.

With The X Factor gearing up for its 15th series on ITV later this year, talk has already turned to some of the changes audiences can expect to see following last year's big live show shake-ups, with recent reports suggesting the show could be about to ditch the Boot Camp stage altogether.

As for that all-important judging line-up, Simon Cowell is expected to return while Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh also confirmed they'd be back last year, meaning the final seat is up for grabs – and it looks like Cheryl is a major frontrunner.

The X Factor returns later this year on ITV.
