    The X Factor is to stay on ITV for at least the next three years, despite declining viewing figures and the arrival of The Voice to the channel.

    The X Factor's 13th series began in August with 8.5 million viewers - four million fewer than 2010's launch show.

    The Voice will move from the BBC to ITV next year, also on a three-year deal.

    But the broadcaster has agreed a deal with Simon Cowell for both The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent to continue on ITV until at least 2019.

    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."

    Really surprised about X-Factor continuing, I would have bet big money on the show being rested after the current series.
