Fan favourite Saara Aalto is due to be one of four judges on the show despite living in London.
Just one single year since Saara stole the hearts of the British public with her incredible vocal performances, the Finnish star is set to become a TV regular on the launch of X Factor Finland.
Saara revealed, "I believe I will be a good mentor. I find it wonderful to inspire people, to help them live their lives and find their own potential. It's my strength."
She added, "I want my singers to really enjoy being on stage and be really self-confident."
Auditions for the show start in September with the show airing in Spring 2018.
Saara is expected to make an announcement of her debut international single this summer after being spotted working with production teams Xenomania & Biffco.
Fans swamped Twitter to congratulate their X Factor fave:
