Brian will return to the ITV series for the live shows, so no doubt we'll be seeing plenty of rather amazing performances and backdrops this series.

He left the X Factor in the UK in 2010 to follow Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini to the US version, which ran for three seasons.

American-born Brian, 37, has worked with a string of famous names including Britney Spears, Beyoncé and Mariah Carey. He's also worked on America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance?

Brian briefly appeared as a judge on X Factor in 2007, replacing Louis Walsh, but then stepped down and was named creative director.

X Factor continues Saturday night on ITV.
