Fifth Judge Rumoured For X Factor

After last week’s debacle…

The X Factor bosses are reportedly considering adding a fifth judge to the panel after the Katie, TreyC, Cheryl controversy of the last week.

The Sun claims Simon Cowell held an emergency summit with fans of the show to get their ideas.
 
 
It’s reported that he’s now considering having guest judges each week, with Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger and Elton John all possible stars who could hit the panel.
 
On Sunday Cheryl Cole refused to vote off either TreyC Cohen or Katie Waissel and the decision was then made by the other three judges- who chose to kick off TreyC.
 
Yesterday host Dermot O’Leary was accused of confirming that there was some kind of ‘fix’ going on.
 
 
Another report then claimed that boss Cowell was angry with him. A source told the Daily Mail:  “Simon is absolutely furious. He denies – 100 per cent – that the X Factor is fixed. The fact that some viewers believe this has left him seething."
