'The Voice' Bosses Blast Rita Ora After She 'Signs £1.5m X Factor Deal'

Bosses of ‘The Voice’ are not happy with Rita Ora, who has just been announced as a new judge on 'The X Factor'.


According to reports, Rita will pocket a cool £1.5 million for taking the job, and sources are now claiming that the singer has chosen "cash over credilbiity" by jumping ship after just one series as a 'The Voice' coach.

Simon Cowell has finally persuaded Rita to join him and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini on the ITV talent showm along with her pal Nick Grimshaw.

An insider tells The Mirror: “It is really disappointing. Rita seems to have chosen cash over credibility.

“As far as we are concerned this smacks of Simon Cowell being desperate to revive an ailing 'X Factor' that has been beaten by Strictly for years in terms of success."

They added: “We wish Rita well but are sorry she feels she has to go. We saw the potential in her first and now Cowell is coming in and stealing her away.”

After weeks of speculation, Rita and Nick were confirmed as the new judges on Tuesday morning.

Sadly, it seems not all fans are happy with the move, and a number of Twitter users have taken to the social networking site to discuss the new recruits.

One fan writes: "So @RitaOra is the new x factor judge! Safe to say I won't be watching this year! She is unnecessarily annoying."

Filming of the show’s auditions is set to begin on 6 July in Manchester.
