I'd drop Cheryl to be honest. I didn't see the point in keeping her last year, where she stuck out like a sore thumb.
Stephen Mulhern... let's hope not.
Well he is ITV's 'safe pair of hands' when it comes to TV shows. Whilst I'd like them to use a different presenter I half suspect they'll opt for someone who's tried and tested.
With regards to changes many of the issues were raised back in November by various users. Back on http://tvforum.uk/forums/post983558#post-983558
I highlighted the length of the series by 'stage'. I wonder how much say X Factor have on the length of episodes and whether they have to have shows on both Saturdays & Sundays throughout. I can't help feeling during the auditions & bootcamp stages they'd be better having just one 90 minute show a week on a Saturday, instead of expecting viewers to also tune in the following night.
