THE X Factor judges are reportedly going to ‘stay the same’ for the next 2017 series.

According to reports, the current X Factor judging panel made up of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger will be returning for a consecutive year. 

“The ­chemistry was perfect last year, so it’s only natural to want to bring the same line-up together again,” a source told The Sun. 

“It’s usually hard to get people’s schedules to align but for the first year it has worked out.

“The judges can’t wait to get started and have already been gossiping behind the scenes.”
