The Daily Star Sunday claim that this year the new X Factor panel will be jetting off to some of the most lavish locations ever, with Louis Walsh even snubbing Ireland! The four music stars will jet off with their hopefuls in September around the world, but where will they be going?
Louis Walsh meanwhile will take his hopefuls to the South of France, while Gary Barlow's lot will be flying out to LA! Finally, Destiny Child's star Kelly Rowland will also be heading stateside with her hopefuls, spending a week in Miami as she picks her finalists.
An insider told the newspaper: “Everyone’s always worried about staying in the British Isles for the judges’ homes and it’s usually Louis’ group that does.
“He can’t bear to be away from his precious pad in Ireland.”
The source continued: “Gary used to live in LA so it’s a special place for him. The viewers and the staff are in for a real treat.
“They’re pulling out all the stops this year with lavish locations and A-list performances from the beginning of the series."
