Mel’s departure is all part of a huge shake-up planned for the singing competition in a bid to win back viewers and steal the ratings crown from BBC rival ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Mel had a controversial first year on the show, which saw her miss the first live final after being rushed to hospital with a mystery illness.

In an interview earlier this month, he explained: “I think I’m done with ‘X Factor’, honestly. My day job is as a manager, I’ve kind of neglected that. I want to get back to being a manager.

“I’ve done 11 seasons. That’s a long time on television. I think they’re going to change it, go for a few new faces.”
