It seems that The X Factor UK could have a brand new judging panel for this year, as all of the judges seem unlikely to return for another season. It seems that, while Kelly Rowland had previously mentioned that she was willing to move to the UK for the show, she has done a complete U turn and decided to quit, claiming that the show has become a bit of a circus.
An X Factor insider explained, "She enjoyed her time on the programme but was taken aback by the circus surrounding it. From his side, Simon Cowell felt that Kelly had got off to a really strong start but slightly faded towards the latter half of the series. He is already on the look-out for fresh talent."
It is another bitter blow for the reality singing competition, as Gary Barlow
has already hinted that he will be quitting The X Factor
judging panel to spend more time with his family in 2012. Then there is Louis Walsh
who has criticised The X Factor
for becoming too boring, which looks like he could also be set to jump ship. The only person who has not commented on her future on The X Factor
is Tulisa Contostavlos
but if she also decides to leave, we could be looking at an all new The X Factor
2012 judging panel.
