X Factor UK 2016 returning host Dermot O’Leary offered a teaser that could make the season more appealing for audiences to watch.

Fans can expect big changes on X Factor UK 2016 as it returns for its 13th season. As revealed earlier, a major overhaul of the judges’ panel welcomes back Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne, and Louis Walsh. The show bid goodbye to Rita Ora and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini. Simon Cowell, franchise creator, executive producer, and fourth judge on the panel, was reportedly responsible for this year’s revamp.

X Factor UK 2016 also welcomes returning host Dermot O’Leary. Thus, fans can expect to see his dancing shoes on live TV again. O’Leary gave an early preview of his dance moves in the teaser trailer for season 13. Hence, the changes on the show looked promising indeed. Yet it seems fans can look forward to another significant change and this time around, it will come from Simon Cowell.

The reputation of Simon Cowell as a judge certainly precedes him regardless of which panel he sits on. Hence, his fellow judges on America’s Got Talent saw fit to welcome him with the appropriate attire. Yet according to O’Leary, fans can expect to see a kinder Simon on X Factor UK 2016. The returning host shared his thoughts on the change in the judge’s disposition towards this season’s batch of hopefuls.

“It feels very warm and it feels very funny. It doesn’t feel cruel. Simon being a dad might have something to do with that, but he reacts to a ‘no’ in a completely different way,” O’Leary revealed on ITV’s This Morning show.
Thus, the characteristic nastiness of Simon Cowell could be a welcome absence on X Factor UK 2016. That is certainly good news, according to CarterMatt.
