Now that it’s returned, we find ourselves wanting to catch up on moments old yet gold. Here’s how to catch up on all past seasons of X Factor, and how to watch the most memorable moments from the previous series!

Within those seasons, there have been a ton of judges, including Mel B, Nick Grimshaw, Nicole Scherzinger, Rita Ora and, of course, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne.

They’ve been axed from this season, however, with only Simon Cowell remaining.

Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams, and Robbie’s wife, Ayda, are the new-look judges.

Where to Watch X Factor Online

You used to be able to watch all previous X Factor seasons on Amazon but, sadly, that is no longer the case.

The ITV Hub is also a no-go. They don’t have any old seasons on their catch-up site, either. Instead, they have a ton of teaser videos and behind-the-scenes snippets for the new season.

Therefore, you sadly won’t be able to watch full episodes or series on catch up. We know, we’re sad, too.

At least we still have Dermot O’Leary to look forward to… right?
