Rita Ora's seat is still warm following her departure yesterday but speculatation is growing ALREADY about the identity of who will fill her boots and replace her.

We wanna find out, this is v.important X Factor shaped stuff.

So at the moment Simon is all on his tod, following the departures of Cheryl (sob!), Nick Grimshaw AND Rita so we're all expecting an entire shake up of the panel.

Which could be a good thing, right?

With 1D's Louis Tomlinson/Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne tipped to be the first to fill the void- there is one more place to be filled.

Acoording to reports Nicole, who last appeared on the show in 2013, is favourite to join 'em.

A source told the MailOnline:

"Rita had been in discussions but it became apparent she was no longer the automatic top option.

"Nicole Scherzinger was a huge success when she was on the X Factor a few years ago and has long been part of the X Factor family. She provided fun and entertainment and a huge personality to the show. She is the definite favourite to get the seat next to Simon."

Fingers crossed.
