Rita Ora Has Reportedly Quit The X Factor

Simon Cowell is now the only remaining judge on the show.

This year's X Factor will be a shadow of it's former self as reports suggest that singer Rita Ora has quit the show. Ora follows in the footsteps of Radio Presenter Nick Grimshaw and Cheryl (Fernandez-Versini? Cole? Tweedy?) in quitting the reality show.

Of last year's judging panel, Simon Cowell is the only remaining judge. Presenters Caroline Flack and Olly Murs have also left the show with Dermot O'Leary already confirmed to be replacing the pair and reprising his hosting role, a position he held on the X Factor from 2007 to 2014 before taking a year off.

Rita Ora has apparently quit the show due to scheduling issues which adds up as she is busy with her acting and music career outside of the talent show.

Rumours have been circulating that former judges Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger may be returning to fill the empty spaces on the panel. Watch this space!
