Mel B has been ‘AXED’ from The X Factor 2015, apparently, as Simon Cowell puts major changes in place for new series.
It has been reported that Mel B has been axed from The X Factor as Simon Cowell puts in place some major changes to the format.
Mel, 39, missed the first live show of the last series of The X Factor due to a mystery illness.
A show source told The Mirror: “It is now looking very, very doubtful she will come back, Simon has made up his mind.
“She is doing America’s Got Talent at the moment so she hasn’t completely fallen out with Simon, but he wants to freshen up X Factor.
“Some fans will be disappointed though as some viewers felt she was the best thing about the show last year.”
The bookies have revamped their judging odds for the next series and The Voice UK coach is the odds-on favourite (1/2) to join certainty Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (1/33) on the panel, according to Ladbrokes.
However, Louis Tomlinson is still up there as one of the favourites.
Stereo Kicks are said to be backing louis to be the next judge and series regular Sinitta says that Louis Tomlinson becoming the new judge would be amazing. She said “He spent a lot of time with us last year, mentoring the talent and watching rehearsals. I could definitely see him going into music management and production so it’s a good place to start.
“Simon’s a great mentor. He mentored him as an artist. He can mentor him to be a mentor.”
