The details on this year’s X Factor judges’ houses have been revealed, according to show sources. This year the four judges will be joined by TWO helpers, as they jet off around the world to whittle down the 8 acts in their category to just three.
Simon Cowell will reportedly be joined in his L.A Mansion with US stars Clive Davis and Kelly Rowland.
Meanwhile Cheryl Cole has selected Dancer and boyfriend Derek Hough and Pussycat doll Nicole Scherzinger to aid in her choices. The trio are set to judge the 8 finalists in the groups later this month in Miami.
Louis [Walsh] will take Brian McFadden and Delta Goodrem with him to Nice, in the south of France.
Finally Dannii will be with sister Kylie and Rodney Jerkins in Australia.
The X Factor returns to ITV1 on August 21.
