It might only be April, but already the inevitable X Factor news is coming thick and fast. Following those reports Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne have been axed from this year's judging panel (something Louis' far from happy about), it looks like the show's set for another big shake-up.

Yep - for the first time in the show's history The X Factor is heading abroad in search of the next Rak-Su, Little Mix G.

And the chosen location they're jetting off to on the hunt for new talent? Bloody Benidorm, mate.

Announcing the news on Twitter, they said: "Benidorm, The X Factor is flying to YOU! Be ready to smash it at our Auditions in Voices Benidorm this Saturday 10am-4pm. Bring your sound to us!"

TBH we're very much considering a quick Skyscanner search to ensure we're there.

Chatting to the Mirror, a source said: "The X Factor team travel far and wide on the search for musical talent and with Benidorm having a huge expat community, the mobile audition tour encompasses that."

An expat even urged wannabe popstars to audition, saying: "Who knows, maybe you are talented enough to get through to judges' houses and get to perform in front of Simon Cowell or Louis Walsh."

This all comes after Louis denied claims he's to be axed from the show, telling The Sun: "My contract is watertight. I’ve checked it out with someone and have told Simon that.

"He has asked me to come and see him in LA.

"Sharon did say she was surprised she hadn’t been given any filming dates. I don’t think they’ve finalised what they’re going to do with the panel."
