Following Britney's departure, there has been much speculation over who would take the pop princess' seat on the panel, with The Daily Star Sunday now reporting Pink could be joining Simon Cowell and Co.
The rumours suggest that the Try singer has changed her mind when it comes to TV talent shows, after previously telling Australia’s Herald Sun: "I was offered The Voice in Australia plus American Idol and The X Factor. I said no because you can’t be honest.
“People will hate you if you’re honest. Simon Cowell is the only person who gets away with it because he’s got an accent. And he’s a man."
She added: “People would just hate me more than they already do. I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. Besides, you can sing karaoke anywhere.”
They claimed: "Simon is looking for a big name to replace Gary but as long as Cheryl is back on the panel he knows the show will be a massive hit.”
The likes of ex-panelist Sharon Osbourne and Rita Ora's names have also been thrown into the mix, with a spokesperson for XF denying that bosses had approached Chezza, adding there were "lots of different options” they were looking into.
