Jane McDonald wasn't my first thought, there's also the Hotel Inspector, and the various documentaries about railways and engineering.


Channel 5 has been broadening their slate and attracting talent like Jeremy Paxman, Michael Portillo etc yesterday they had a documentary on abuse, they still have fluff like Cruising with Jane McDonald and the upcoming reboot of The Bachelor but TBH that's no different from Channel 4, they're also dipping their toe into drama with two commissioned for this year.

There's also been Michael Palin in North Korea, which got the highest ratings for its slot, and was Channel 5's highest rated programme since 2016.

Paxman on the Queen's Children was a welcome change from the typical royal documentary on Channel 5 (which are normally presenter-less and full of talking heads and voiceovers)

Has there been any confirmation what’s actually happening yet?


From what I have seen, there hasn’t been any yet and until it is nearer to the time X Factor comes, expect the information coming on at the moment to be predictions and rumours until they are confirmed. For now, it could be expected to go on (unless if the production team decide not to do a new series this year)
