There has been a lot of talk about who will be the new judges on the next season of the UK version of The X Factor, with a number of names being linked to the job. It is expected that all the judges from the last season of The X Factor will leave the show, which means we will see either three or four new judges on the new season.
It had been rumoured that Simon Cowell would return to the UK version of The X Factor, while there has also been talk of Cheryl Cole making a return to the show. While there has still been no official word on who will be the new judges on The X Factor, Cheryl has received the backing of Katy Perry to make a return.
Perry told Yahoo Omg!, "Of course I want to see Cheryl back on The X Factor - who doesn't right? Simon don't be mean - just pay her what it takes - The British Public want her back on their TV! Cheryl is absolutely adorable - and if I perform on The UK X Factor next season and Cheryl isn't one of the judges - then Simon you are going to have me to answer to."
While it is expected that none of the judges from last year will return, it has also been rumoured that Simon Cowell is willing to offer Nicole Scherzinger a staggering £3m to return for a third season. Meanwhile, Cheryl Cole is believed to be offered £2m to make her return to the show.
