With the shock news that Cheryl Cole had left the US X Factor judging panel, it must have been a busy weekend for X Factor insiders eager to confirm the UK’s stellar set of judges. But the wait is finally over – Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh will make up the UK X Factor judging panel.
So it’s all change for X Factor fans, with the exception of old favourite Louis Walsh. Kelly Rowland’s experience as a member of one of the biggest selling girl groups of all time, Destiny’s Child, will certainly stand her in good stead while Gary Barlow’s boy band brilliance will be a definite hit. And we reckon N Dubz diva Tulisa Contostavlos has got something different to bring to the panel.
However, the new line-up is not such good news for Cheryl fans as after lengthy discussions with Simon Cowell and the X Factor bosses, it's been revealed that the gorgeous songstress will definitely not be returning to the show.
With auditions across the country coming up over the summer, we can't wait to see what the new line-up is like!
