It seems that it is almost a certainty that Tulisa Contostavlos will be leaving The X Factor and the rumours of her replacement have already started to spread. Simon Cowell already has two empty seats to fill on The X Factor USA, so he is looking to get the UK version sorted as soon as possible.
It was recently suggested that Sharon Osbourne would be rejoining Simon Cowell and taking one of the spare seats at the judges table on The X Factor USA, before it was then claimed that Simon actually wanted her to go and be the main judge on the Australian version of the show.
Now, Sharon Osbourne has become the favourite to replace Tulisa Contostavlos on The X Factor UK. There has also been mentions of Robbie Williams, Mel B, Cheryl Cole and even a suggestion of Cher Lloyd. However, Tulisa’s representatives are adamant that no official decision has yet been made on her future.
They recently explained, “We do know on very good authority that as always no decisions have been made on the judging panel for this year yet.”
There is still plenty of time before the new season of The X Factor starts, so we may have to wait a while yet, before we discover who the new judges are. Who would you like to see on the new X Factor judging panel?
