Someone’s got to be the Queen Bee on the* X Factor* judging panel, and it seems Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s happier to take a back seat and just enjoy herself this year.

She told heat: “It’s a Saturday night entertainment show. Ultimately, the viewers want it to be fun.


“I’m enjoying the new panel.”

So how’s Simon Cowell getting on with his new judging panel?


“Rita [Ora] is a diva, but adorable,” he reveals.

“I really do like her. I like people who have an ego and want to do well, it makes them more interesting.

“There is a side to Rita that I don’t think people have seen yet, which is funny.”

Rita also told heat exclusively that she knows exactly what category she wants.

“I one hundred per cent know which category I want. I’m a girls’ girl. But whoever I get, I will try to help them.”
