X Factor 2014 will begin with a week of specials on ITV prior to the show’s first segment.

ITV has announced a week of X Factor specials in the lead up to the new series’s launch.
Xtra Factor host Sarah-Jane Crawford will host five special programs on ITV2, which will look back at previous series and forward to this year’s competition.
On Monday, August 25, Simon Cowell will reveal what he has in store for the show’s 11th series in The Boss Is Back. The special will chronicle Cowell’s return to the UK series after three years in the US.
On Tuesday, August 26, the focus will turn to returning judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. Cheryl Looks Back will feature the singer discussing her return to The X Factor, as well as reminiscing on previous series.
Louis Walsh will reflect on his ten years on The X Factor‘s panel in Louis Looks Back on Wednesday, August 26.
On Thursday (August 28), ITV2 will air The Wonderful World of The X Factor, which will feature contributions from Dermot O’Leary.

All shows will air at 8pm on ITV2.
