Welcome to The Xtra Factor guide at TV.com. The Xtra Factor airs on ITV2 when The X Factor ends on ITV1 and is hosted by Ben Shephard. During the audition stages it shows some exclusive unseen auditions and reactions from the judges.

  • Fun and revealing spin-off show with a great host

    8.5
    Holly Willoughby is fantastic. I've always thought so. And on The Xtra Factor she really is at her best. Her informal interview style with the judges and members of the audience is tonely great for the show, which reveals more about the workings of The X Factor and the people on it.



    The features in the show are funny throughout, especially the way the presenters take the mickey out of early contestants without them realising. It somehow gives you the impression that you are there with them.



    In comparison to other reality spin-off shows this one is the best in terms of its features, tone and presenters.moreless

    Louis is pathetic. What were you thinking you crazy irish balding man-child. Just cause they\'re irish!!!! they cant hold a tune!!! Maria is a terrible loss :(( it was not a hard choice, it was easy. conways out. i guess we are gonna have to blame this on the luck of the irish eh?
  • its disgusting that Louis is not wearing a poppy. Make him apologise, its disrespectful.. Chico was the only one wearing a poppy, he had my vote absolutely

    Make Louis apologise for not wearing a poppy its disrespecting our war heros ! well done Chico for being the only one to wear a poppy. Nicholas was great this week,Brenda sang her worse performance so far but was still great. Hope the manky conway sisters go tonight, cant stomach anymore of their whining! Chico, you were great! keep up the entertaining and great work. Maria has no personality and comes across as wooden on the stage. Yes, Simon was right she isn\'t dirty enough to sing that song. Good choice for Shayne, Andy just gets better and better. Brenda, I would buy your records!moreless
