About Celebrity
Celebrity is the fame and public attention accorded by the mass media to individuals or groups or, occasionally, animals, but is usually applied to the persons or groups of people (celebrity couples, families, etc.) themselves who receive such a status of fame and attention. Celebrity status is often associated with wealth (commonly referred to as fame and fortune), while fame often provides opportunities to earn revenue.
Successful careers in sports and entertainment are commonly associated with celebrity status, while political leaders often become celebrities. People may also become celebrities due to media attention on their lifestyle, wealth, or controversial actions, or for their connection to a famous person.

Simon Cowell heads up the judging panel for the show and is joined by Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger with The X Factor: Celebrity lineup includes everyone from Love Island contestants to Ricki Lake.

Talking about why he’s doing a celebrity version of The X Factor, Simon said: “It just felt so obvious to do a celebrity version.

“The only condition was I couldn’t know who was going to be on it.

 

“I said to the team, ‘You’ve got to find some acts who you believe can sell records off the back of this, because if you don’t do that it won’t work.’

“So that was the deal and we stuck to it. I swear to God I didn’t have a clue who any of the acts were.”
