This would be VERY interesting.

There’s a lot of talk about the X Factor at the moment between rumours that Olly Murs will present this year’s show and Louis Walsh quitting.

The latest report is that Simon Cowell wants Rita Ora to join the judging panel this year.

It seems Simon Cowell is planning to make big changes this year by recruiting big names to perform on the live shows and changing up the judging panel.

According to the publication, the music producer also spoke about how he recruited Alesha Dixon from BBC’s Strictly to join the Britain’s Got Talent judging panel.

“We were calling Alesha for two years to come and join one of our shows. I think they have to want to come over in the first place” said Simon.

As of yet, there is no official confirmation on whether Rita is leaving the show but she recently hinted her time on The Voice might be over.
