There have been plenty of rumours surrounding the judging panel on the UK version of the hit television series The X Factor, with a number of people being linked to the show, while others are rumoured to be leaving. One such rumour was that Tulisa Contostavlos would not be returning to the show next season.
That rumour has now been confirmed, as Simon Cowell has pulled off one of the biggest coups in television history, by managing to get global superstar Adele to join the panel. Adele is a huge fan of The X Factor and is said to have welcomed the move, as she searches for inspiration for her new album.
A close friend explained, "Adele has been a fan of the show since the very beginning and often gives her own little critique while watching the show. She is struggling to find the motivation for her new album so thought that being a judge on The X Factor would be a perfect way to kill some time."
It is believed that Adele will be the highest paid judge in X Factor history, eclipsing that of the rest of the judges on the panel. Other judges already confirmed for a return is just Louis Walsh, while Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger are still undecided.
