Longer term if The X Factor does end up returning next year as supposedly planned and as if it was never axed then being missing this year won't seem so unusual considering the situation, and perhaps the break (effectively two years considering the show as we knew it didn't air last year) will do it good - though only if Cowell has learned from it. Which he probably hasn't.

I can see it playing out like that. I’d love a decent normal series but I think Cowell needs to be off-screen for that. Hopefully a back-to-basics approach either way with minimal (obvious at least) manipulation.
DeMarkay and Brekkie gave kudos

Assuming it HAD been quietly axed, it’s possible the chances of XF returning in 2021 have now risen as the schedules will be so devoid of drama next year. Shiny floor stuff- which is obviously much easier to film given all the restrictions- will dominate.

I though the X Factor had been axed last year?

X-factor was renewed for a one series deal either at the end of last year or the start of this year at the same time BGT got a multi year (five?) pick up, but it was noted that this year would be a rest for X-factor

Looks like the international gameshow Lingo may be coming to the UK:

We had a go at Lingo in the late 1980s, and it didn't last very long:


Mind you it didn't last very long in the States first time round either, but then neither did a lot of 1980s gameshow formats to be fair.

The Cube must be back rehearsing or filming now, or is that the rectangular cuboid? (If Schofe says it then it must be true! Taken from his Instagram)

It’s most likely as the ‘cube’ doesn’t have exactly equal side lengths. I doubt they’ll call it The Rectangular Cuboid, it doesn’t have the same ring to it.

So, where is this being recorded then?
The fact that the label for lighting hoist 25 in clearly visable in the grid, rules out film stages.
So, TC1 or Studio D at Elstree?
