According to a source, the spin-off will be dedicated to the singers who got rejected from The X Factor and will give them a chance to face off against each other to improve their skills, reports aceshowbiz.com.

"It has always been the bad auditions that get everyone talking on The X Factor each year. And another thing people love to watch on TV is people undergoing huge transformations - like on Davina McCall's show This Time Next Year," the source told The Sun newspaper.

"Now ITV will combine these two things as they launch a new show which sees awful singers transform into superstar performers - or that's what they're hoping. It's sure to be a great laugh but also heart-warming to see some amazing transformations," the source added. After weeks of coaching, the one who improves the most at the end of the series will be crowned the winner.

The X Factor is set to return with judges Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh later this year.
