X Factor 2015: ITV boss admits live Judges’ Houses was “a change too far”!


ITV boss, Elaine Bedell has admitted that X Factor live Judges’ Houses was a “change too far”.


In a attempt to boost ratings for X Factor 2015 bosses introduced live Judges Houses, where the contestants would find out their fate live in front of the nation.

ITV Boss Elaine Bedell has admitted it was a ‘mistake’ during a talk at Broadcast Commissioning Forum.

She said: “We embarked on this series wanting some changes. This is one of the issues with long-running shows – you look to them constantly to think how they can be kept on their toes.

“Possibly with X Factor ​we went too far with the mix of live TV in the Judges’ Houses episode,

“Universally on the production side we felt that it wasn’t successful, but now we are back to the live shows that we know and love” reported Broadcast.
