Simon confirms X Factor return but who will join him?

| 22.11.2013

Coral bookmaker has slashed her odds into 1-2 from even money to make a comeback next year.

Rita Ora has also caught Simon’s eye and can be backed at 6-4 to join the panel, while Nicole Sherzinger and Sharon Osbourne are unlikely to be judges next year and are 4-1 and 5-1 respectively to hold onto their seats.

“Betting on next year’s judging panel has been volatile to say the least with so many different celebrities being linked to the job. However with the return of Simon, it’s looking very likely that he’ll pick Cheryl to make up the dream team,” commented Coral’s Nicola McGeady.
