And we have photo proof!!
Simon Cowell will be joined by 3 familiar faces when the UK 'X Factor' returns, and unfortunately for us, one of them isn't Cheryl.
Following the departures of Cheryl, Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw, the long running reality competition will see the returns of original judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne, as well as Nicole Scherzinger. Also, original host with the most Dermot O'Leary is back as well.
So......season 10 all over again, except sub Gary Barlow for Simon Cowell!!
The official Twitter account for the series tweeted out the above photo saying:
Welcome back @MrsSOsbourne, @NicoleScherzy & Louis Walsh who join @SimonCowell on this year's judging panel. 👉🏼 https://t.co/xl0oQvHCKF— The X Factor (@TheXFactor) June 1, 2016
