    I used to live for Konnie Huq on the Xtra Factor. Me and my mates used to tweet the X Factor Twitter account with awful messages for her. I like to think shed see them live on air and die a little each time.

    Sad about Sarah-Jane being given the boot. Thought she was a lot of fun once they went live.

    I'm inclined to think the axing of Louis Walsh is just a publicity stunt. I'll be more surprised to see him go than Cherly, payrise or not. He's clearly happy to play along with whatever storyline Cowell gives him, so a last minute 'reprieve' seems perfectly fathomable.

    Changing the host (and going from one to two), the host of Xtra factor (although I didn't realise that had been confirmed) and one of the other judges (as I assume the only hope Mel B has is them being unable to find anyone else) would still pretty much make it the biggest change the series has ever seen, wouldn't it? Or at least since the year they swapped Kate Thornton for Dermot and brought in Dannii as the fourth judge.

    WOW :D

    So has Rita been poached from The Voice then? Can't wait for Oldham's finest to show his judging skills on the country's least unpredictable TV show as well.

    Oh FOR FUCKS SAKE, Mel and Louis were the ONLY GOOD ONES last time round and they've replaced them with a non-entity and THAT CUNT. Ugh.

    :manson: at this

    To be fair, Rita was ALRIGHT on The Voice. They could have picked worse. As for GRIMSHAW. FUCK OFF. FUCK RIGHT OFF. FUCK RIGHT OFF AND DIE.

    Definitely OUT this year. There could not be a more irritating individual than GRIMMY
    Bring back Sicknote Rowland instead!

    I wonder how his flippancy would help him through the process of the show.

    Who knew Nick Grimshaw could judge? Aaaaaaaow.

    I'm disappointed that there's no token urban judge/knower of some colored people on the panel this year. Not even black person expert Louis Walsh.

    Is this likely to impact on his Radio 1 show?

    Why's everyone getting so hung up about the panel anyway? It's all about the TALANT innit.

    As long as there's future recording artists comparable to Lauren Platt, Jay James, Lola Saunders, Stereo Kicks, Miss Dynamix, Nicholas MacDonald, Christopher Maloney, Lucy Spraggan and Carolynne Poole then they'll definitely win this year's ratings war.

    I guess I'm part of the minority that likes Nick Grimshaw. 'Judges houses in Oldham' makes me think he won't being taking this too seriously and make it a bit more lighthearted.

    My problem is the appointment of Rita. I didn't see her on the voice so I don't know what she's like, but how utterly UNINSPIRED.

    To be honest, I don't give a shit about the judges, I'm not even too fussed about the standard of contestants, it's the predictable song choices that are killing this show.

    I can't see why Cowell has made the big play for Ora, other than to say he has stolen her from the BBC. I know The Voice has a very different warm and fuzzy tone in general than The X Factor, but even bearing that in mind she had literally nothing to say.

    Cowell will primarily be thinking of the media storm that will inevitably whip up over "Cherly vs Ora" dress wars, but with Cherly cast in the Dannii role this time.
    It could have been any female in their 20s. Let's just be grateful it wasn't Jessie J.

    Although times are indeed dark when one is grateful for RITA ORA

    HATE 'Grimmy'! His head will swell even more now.

    I wonder if his boyfriend had anything to do with him getting the gig.

    I am not really a fan of Olly but it would have made more sense for him to be on the panel and for 'Grimmy' to present the Xtra factor. With a less wanky female. The leave Flack to present the main show. as the sole presenter.

    Worst kept secret in showbiz apparently.

    Love how the Saturdays couldn't ever get a performance then Rochelle waltzes in. She really is ITV's darling at the moment.

    Caroline looks FABULOUS but the rest of them look so fucking AWFUL!

    Nick's FOREHEAD!
    Rita's BLOW JOB LIPS!
    Cherly's HOOK NOSE!
    Simon's FROZEN FACE!
    Olly's....EVERY FIBRE OF HIS BEING!

    Love the photobomb by the two girls next to Simon though!

    I might dip in for judges houses and the first week live finals, but not watching won't be a chore at all. I really hope the ratings are abysmal.
