We literally this second just finished writing about Mark Ronson joining Nick Grimshaw at Judges’ Houses for The X Factor.

But we’re over that. That’s old news now, because we just found out that Meghan Trainor will be Rita Ora’s right-hand woman during this stage of the ITV show.


The All About That Bass star will be helping Rita decide which of her Girls category she wants to take through to the live shows.


And rumour has it the Body On Me singer will be taking her gals to LA. Beats Grimmy’s Boys going to Oldham, Greater Manchester, eh?

Oh, and it looks like Cheryl Fernandez-Versini will have Jess Glynne with her at Judges’ Houses to help her with her Groups, and Simon Cowell is rumoured to be joined by Louis Tomlinson to cut down his Overs.

The X Factor continues with the first episode of the Six Chair Challenge on Sunday (4 October) at 7pm on ITV.

A stylish panama hat is the perfect accessory to keep a low profile at the airport

These ladies love to stand out when it comes to fashion, and bold blue numbers certainly make an impact

Both ladies looked amazing in their white cut-out dresses

A black jumpsuit is a wardrobe staple. We love Rita's Jean Paul Gaultier ensemble

Remember Cheryl's infamous outfit on her first day of X Factor USA? Colour blocking is a tricky trend in itself to pull off, let alone with flared trousers too…

Cheryl and Rita turned heads in their majestic full length scarlet gowns. We love Cheryl's Alexander McQueen dress the most though

Cheryl wore this beautiful gold metallic frock in 2009 but we reckon Rita has the edge in her studded Balmain mini dress
