It’s only been an matter of weeks since it was announced that Cheryl Cole will be back on the X Factor panel this year.
But now Simon Cowell has been said to be ‘desperate’ to sing Ellie Goulding to join the team and become a judge on the show!
Fellow judge Louis Walsh has let slip that Simon is doing everything he can to get the Burn singer on the show.
Talking to The Sun Louis admitted:
‘I’ve heard Ellie Goulding. I just hope it’s a girl.’
The trouble is Ellie is about to start a massive 8 week US tour and has a lot of her plate so would she be able to find time for the X Factor?
A source has reported:
‘There are a lot of people being discussed and the reality is, Louis isn’t involved in finding the fourth judge.
‘Simon has given Cheryl the final sign-off on the new female judge because he wants her to work with someone she gets along with.’
If Ellie does join the show she will sit alongside Simon, Cheryl and Louis for this years X Factor that starts to be filmed in May.
