While we won't be seeing the X Factor on our screens for another few months, the auditions will be kicking off soon.
Last year saw the judging panel consist of Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne.
Reports today say that Cowell is aiming to bring in fresh blood for this year's show.
According to the Irish Sun, Nicole has already been axed and Sharon and Louis could follow her.
A show source confirmed to the Irish Sun: “There are no plans for Nicole to return to The X Factor this year. Other announcements about the judging line-up will be made in due course.”
Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne have already been contracted for the show but Simon and the producers have lost faith.
The source also revealed that Sharon forgetting her contestants' names last year and Louis coming clean about a hearing problem in a recent Specsavers ad for hearing aids has raised questions over their suitability for the show.
