X FACTOR is back on our screens and we’re being entertained by the latest singers as they battle it out in the Six Chair Challenge.
Lydia Calvin may have charmed fellow star Brad Howard, but can she convince the judges of her talents? Here’s all you need to know.
Who is Lydia Calvin?
Lydia Calvin is a singer who has been making a name for herself on The X Factor.
She’s been in the headlines for more than just her voice however, as the beautiful Instagram star has been dating fellow X Factor singer Brad Howard.
The pair met backstage during auditions for the ITV talent show and have since been on a string of romantic dinner dates together.
She has even met his mum and gran in his home city of Manchester.
Lydia told the Daily Star: “We get on really well. Who knows what will happen?
“We live at different ends of the country but if it’s to be, it’s to be.”
When is The X Factor 2017 on ITV and who are the judges?
After launching on September 2, X Factor 2017 will continue at 8pm every Saturday and Sunday on ITV.
The show begins, as always, with auditions as the nationwide hunt to find this year’s winning act begins.
Despite heavy speculation of a judging shake up, the panel will be remaining exactly the same as last year.
Alisha Dixon is also appearing for certain audition shows, having stepped in as a guest judge when Sharon and Nicole were unable to attend.
It’s the first time in seven years that X Factor bosses have kept the same judging panel as the year before.
A source said: “The chemistry was perfect last year, so it’s only natural to want to bring the same line-up together again.”
Dermot O’Leary will be returning to hosting duties after making his big comeback to the show last year.
