Everyone wants to be the new One Direction on The X Factor

You would, wouldn't you? Just admit it.

The success of One Direction in last year's X Factor has seen a whole host of groups flock to auditions for the next series. Although One Direction didn't win last year's X Factor, they are expected to enjoy massive success after being signed to mentor Simon Cowell's record label, and now hopefuls are keen to follow in their footsteps by shunning the solo route and forming bands instead.

An insider said: "One Direction have totally changed the ball game this year.

"Every other act is now a band and they have put so much effort into their appearances.

"We've been putting far more group acts through than in previous years."

However, production staff have suggested the quality of the acts is down on previous years, as they fear some singers have been put off by the uncertainty of the judging line-up.

Both Simon and Cheryl Cole are reportedly set to quit the show in favour of the American version, while Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh have yet to sign up and insiders are worried contestants don't have the same faith.

The source added: "The talent pool is drying up. Production is finding itself in the situation where literally everyone who should have done so has already tried out.

"The fact Simon and Cheryl might not be there is also having an impact as people are obsessed by them.

"They figure they'll try out another year when they're back."

We were worried about this - and it's reason enough for Simon and Cheryl to stay!

Still, more One Direction type bands? We won't say no to that!
