ITV has struck a new three-year deal for Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor, which will see two of its biggest formats continuing on the channel until at least 2019.
The agreement, with Syco Entertainment and FremantleMedia UK, will begin with Britain’s Got Talent in Spring 2017 followed by The X Factor in the Autumn.
Kevin Lygo, ITV’s Director of Television, said: “Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor are both big, brilliant, wonderful shows and I am delighted that they will continue to take up their place as an important part of our schedule for the next three years. They are defining shows for us, ones that we are very proud to have as part of our entertainment slate, and they continue year after year, for months at a time, to be amongst the most popular and hugely entertaining formats on television.”
Simon Cowell said: "I want to thank ITV for continuing to be fantastic partners. I’m delighted for the shows and, in particular, for all the talented people who work on them with us.”
The X Factor is  currently in series thirteen, while Britain’s Got Talent tenth series aired in the spring.
