There’s not long to go until ‘X Factor’ is back on our screens, and with the initial episodes already filmed, this year’s panellists are turning their attention to the show’s later rounds, and Nick Grimshaw is busy deciding on a helper for judges’ houses.
The Radio 1 DJ isn’t exactly lacking when it comes to celeb pals but he’s got his sights set on a certain twerking superstar.
Grimmy was chatting to The Sunday Times’ Culture mag when he revealed his big wish, and the DJ didn’t hesitate in naming Miley Cyrus as his dream helper.
"Yeah, she does silly things and gets her boobs out. But she's not overly sexualised, she doesn't slag people off, and she's had boyfriends and girlfriends - I like that.
"I went to her dressing room after a show, and she was twerking with all her friends and showing everyone her arse and sticking it on Instagram, because that's what 21-year-olds do. They don't care."
Miley probably shouldn’t book her flights just yet though, as this isn’t the first time Nick’s enthused about a potential star helper.
Earlier this year, he named Jessie Ware as a potential recruit, stating that it was “just [about] whether or not she can fit it in”.
Rita Ora and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini also need to pick their helpers, unlike Simon Cowell, who basically has to invite Sinitta to join him again.
This time around, the judges’ houses round is facing a revamp, and it’s believed they could be screened live for the first time.
The judges are currently enjoying some time off ahead of the six chair challenge, which will be filmed early next month.
