We were sent the following details: AXS TV is proud to announce the return of the international phenomenon THE X FACTOR UK for the third-consecutive year, after renewing a contract with FremantleMedia International (FMI) and Syco Entertainment for another multi-year deal, serving as the U.S. broadcast home.
