Simon Cowell eager to sign final X Factor judge

Simon Cowell is getting desperate to sign some judges up to The X Factor 2014 with just months before the show returns to our screens.

TalkTalk will continue to sponsor The X Factor, the UK’s biggest musical talent show, for a further three years for £30m and so expectations are high!

The show’s open auditions have already wrapped up after concluding filming in Liverpool at the weekend.

Auditions with the judges start in the summer and there’s been no word on just who will join Simon and Cheryl Cole on the panel this year.

While Louis Walsh was widely expected to return, even his future on the panel is in doubt.

Mel B, Kesha and Jake Shears are said to be being chased by producers, but bosses haven’t yet managed to sign any deals.

Part of the problem is said to be the budget with Simon having blown some £1.5 million getting Cheryl back and Mel demanding a £1 million fee.

The Spice Girl is said to be “ready to go” but a source warned: “Fine details such as her expenses budget and filming dates need to be agreed.”

Mel confirmed last week that she was in talks with bosses but insisted that “nothing’s been signed”.

Other acts that have been apparently been approached, such as Paloma Faith, have outright refused to take part.

Paloma said last month: “I don’t believe in judgement. I don’t think I know enough about music yet to be the sort of person to do that… I’m winging it myself!”

A spokesperson for the show confirmed to that no official decisions had been made.
