X Factor: The Band debuted on ITV last night, and fans are not happy with the show.

Taking to Twitter, viewers slammed the new series, which is being judged by Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell.

Tweeters expressed their huge disappointment at the format – which some noted was very similar to Popstars: The Rivals, which aired back in 2002.

Others encouraged people to boycott the show, and wait for Little Mix’s new talent series on the BBC, which is set to air in 2020.

 

It comes as Little Mix launched their own talent show to rival that of their ex-manager Simon Cowell.

Little Mix: The Search has a similar format which will see the four band members, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirwall, Jesy Nelson and Perrie Edwards search for talent for the UK’s next big pop band.

X Factor: The Band continues next Wednesday on ITV at 8.30pm.
