X Factor Latest News - Spoilers

You didn't think we would mention the X Factor and not at least update you on the latest news did you?

The X Factor Dream Team - play X Factor bingo at MeccaIt has been confirmed that international DJ and all-round star, Calvin Harris, will be helping Nicole Scherzinger at judge's houses, joining her at her villa in the south of France. It's a bit of a turn around on Simon Cowell's part because back in 2009 he apparently gave Calvin a life-time ban from the show when he stormed the stage to mock Jedward! Mocking Jedward is just wrong in our books because we loved them but this is Calvin Harris we're talking about and now he and Taylor Swift are no longer an item we can all live in hope again.

Back to Nicole Scherzinger. She will be missing from this weekend's show as she was in Austria with Andrew Lloyd Webber at the time of filming. We think she agreed to the gig with ALW to make up for the fact that she abandoned her role in Cats on Broadway earlier this year in order to take up her position as an X Factor judge.

Alesha Dixon, former Britain's Got Talent judge and a pop star in her own right, joined Louis Walsh at his villa in Ibiza as his helper and advisor. Wonder if he took her advice?

Whilst the auditions are still airing on TV we have heard the rumours of which judge has which category and the results we hear are:

Boys Nicole Scherzinger
Girls Simon Cowell
Overs Sahron Osbourne
Groups Louis Walsh

To be honest, we think this is exactly the right way to go with the categories so look forward to seeing the show develop.
