The X Factor will return to arena auditions for the new series after previously axing the larger scale performances.
The singing show launched with room auditions, however switched to larger arenas, and then back to rooms in 2016.
But now, the arena will return with the public able to see… and be part of the auditions.
ITV said: “We’re getting out of the room, and back into the Arena!
“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for the acts who come to audition, so why not pair up the biggest performance of their lives an incredible Arena atmosphere in front of thousands of people… and the Judges of course.”
The X Factor will return to ITV in August.
