Dannii & Louis To Face X Factor Axe?
Reports say Simon wants a totally fresh judging panel…
A source told the tabloid that ITV execs were keen to give the show an overhaul. “If Simon and the other show bosses get their way this will be the most dramatic shake-up in X Factor history. The producers are very excited by the idea of the show being entirely fresh. There is a view that Louis and Dannii are a bit tired and have offered all they can, especially Louis. But they’ll be shocked to hear they may not be wanted.”
But insiders are worried there will be a public backlash if Dannii and Louis are given the boot. “Viewers love Dannii especially,” the source continued. “Simon has never understood how popular she is. It’s important she is there, and for viewers to have a sense of familiarity.”
Dermot O’Leary will return as host.
