A wide range of guest judges have appeared at the auditions so far Rita Ora who won the crowds on Monday however bosses are apparently concerned about her schedule and credibility; Nicole Scherzinger who guest judged on Wednesday (30th May) and Leona Lewis.
ITV bosses are apparently keen on Nicole Scherzinger whilst Simon wants someone with a “gutsy attitude” to win over viewers.
A Source told the Mail “Simon would [love to have] an American back on the panel as well”
The X Factor starts on ITV 1 and ITV 2 in early autumn and auditions continue next week at Mancherster.
