The X Factor judges panel has been REVEALED and there’s not a 1D member in sight.

We have been waiting all bloody year to find out who’s going to be on the judges panel for this year’s X Factor. There were loads of rumours and speculations of different people, including Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik being a judge for season 12, but today we can finally reveal the confirmed judges.

Fan bloody dabby dosy!


Nick Grimshaw– the sass, the banter, the most relatable member on the panel. PLEASE say Harry will be his guest for judges houses. Please.


Rita Ora– fresh from judging The Voice, Miss Ora has moved on to the bigger (and better) music reality show and has plenty of experience from rivalry channel, BBC.


Cheryl– an old flame. Having judged a good few series of this show as well as being on a similar show herself many years ago, this beauty knows her stuff.


Simon Cowell– the top dog. The man. The leader. Where would the show be without uncle Si? Soz, Gary.

We cannot wait to see our fave talent show back on our screens later this year and the judges panel is looking fierce as ever.
