Former X Factor Finalist Tipped To Become Judge For Next Season

We were devastated to find out during the week that the wonderful Nicole Scherzinger would not be returning for another series of the X Factor. She was by far our favourite judge.

However, life goes on. Immediately the "Cheryl to Return" rumours began but it seems one of the X Factor finalists will become a judge himself.

According to Heat, sources close to the show are tipping Olly Murs to take that all-important judge's seat for the next season of the X Factor.

Olly is apparently in talks at the moment to take Nicole's place on the panel which could mean he would be joining Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh who are already confirmed for a return.

Other potential judges for the show include Cheryl, Rita Ora and Dannii Minogue. Sharon Osbourne has already confirmed she won't be back next year.

We love Olly, but is he enough of superstar to take on a judging role for the X Factor?
