RITA HAS THE X FACTOR
Simon Cowell is lining up Rita Ora for this year’s
X Factor judging panel.
This follows her judging role on the show in 2015, where she mentored Louisa Johnson to victory.
Last week, the annual Sunday Times Rich List revealed Rita, 27, has joined the list of the UK’s most affluent young musicians with an estimated wealth of £16 million, after enjoying huge success with her hits Anywhere and For You.
So it seems her popularity hasn’t gone amiss with the
X Factor boss, who has axed Nicole Scherzinger as part of a dramatic shake-up.
Mel B was lined up for a judging role, but family problems in the US (plus a messy divorce from Stephen Belafonte) saw her miss out.
Mariah Carey and Kylie Minogue are also being targeted as judges.
Simon is keen to win back Rita
