Kelly Rowland for an X Factor return?
Last year Kelly did have a turbulent stint on the show after allegations of bullying, clashing with colleague Tulisa Contostavlos and missing a week after staying in LA with a sore throat.
Kelly did say that she was home sick during last years show and that the “media circus” surrounding the show just made it worse.
However a source has told the Sun: “It seems to be taken as read that Kelly is not coming back but that is wrong. Simon Cowell and executive producer Richard Holloway were very pleased with her on last year’s show and would have her back,”
“It’s at an early stage and discussions have yet to start. But Kelly is still very much in the mix.”
Former judge Gary Barlow is currently in talks with ITV and SYCO bosses to return to his judging seat. It is also expected that Louis Walsh and last years winning judge Tulisa will make an appearance.
“Kelly had a great time and is actually very keen to come back. She loved all the drama, even when it was pretty harsh against her. Kelly is a tough cookie and a few barbs from viewers or whoever is water off a duck’s back to her.”
“Yes, it was a draining experience and one she probably didn’t realise at the outset was going to be quite so gruelling. But mentoring her acts – especially Misha B – was really rewarding for her and she loved it. Talks haven’t started but they will soon.” A friend of Kelly’s explained.
