Who is Simon ruling out for the X Factor judging panel?

Despite rumours strongly indicating, that British singer, Ellie Goulding would be joining the 2014 X Factor panel; music mogul, Simon Cowell has insisted that’s not the case.

When asked if the Burn singer could be a judge on the show, Cowell simply replied, “she’s not on the list”.

Simon was then questioned on who he had considered for this year’s X Factor panel, but he just shrugged his shoulders and laughed: “No…got any ideas?”

Simon went onto dismiss other judge rumours, which included Rihanna and Rita Ora.

“In terms of the rumours – Rita Ora, no, Rihanna we never spoke to, Louis I would like to come back. It’s a decision I’ve got to make with the producers and ITV so we’ll see what happens.”
