Sinitta Talks 'X Factor' Judges Rita Ora And Nick Grimshaw: 'Simon Cowell Should Have Gone With Someone More Seasoned'

Sinitta Has Her Say On New 'X Factor' Judges... And She's Not Impressed

Sinitta has had her say about the newest recruits to ‘The X Factor’ panel, and it seems she’s less than convinced about Simon Cowell’s latest additions.


Last month, it was confirmed that Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw would be joining the ‘X Factor’ judging team, replacing departing judges Mel B and Louis Walsh, although the announcement was met with an admittedly lukewarm reception.

Now, the ‘So Macho’ singer - who joins Simon at Judges’ Houses every year, usually in some class of household-item-as-clothes attire - has shared her thoughts on Rita and Nick joining the show… and it seems she’s not exactly filled with confidence.


"Grimmy, no singing experience at all. Cheryl - is it ten years she's been singing now? Simon has [no experience], so I think they could have had someone a bit more seasoned."

Sinitta went on to issue a warning to Simon, revealing “all hell will break loose” if the music mogul decides not to include her at the Judges’ Houses stage of this year’s competition.


‘The X Factor’ returns to screens later this year, with Caroline Flack and Olly Murs taking the helm for the first time, taking over from Dermot O’Leary, who fronted the talent show for eight years, before stepping down in March.
