The X Factor 2012 judges

The X Factor 2012 judges' houses locations and helpers have been revealed this morning.

According to the Daily Star Sunday, new judge [tag]Nicole Scherzinger[/tag] will jet out to Dubai with US rapper Ne-Yo to whittle down her acts.

[tag]Gary Barlow[/tag] is set to stay in London and will be joined with Robbie Williams to decide which acts in his category make the live shows.

[tag]Louis Walsh[/tag] will join forces with Sharon Osbourne in Las Vegas while [tag]Tulisa Contostavlos[/tag] will visit St Lucia with UK star Tinie Tempah.

This year twelve acts will make it through to the final live shows, which are due to start in October.

A source told the tabloid newspaper today: “Producers really wanted to up the ante this year with the destinations.

"Tulisa is thrilled to be going to the Caribbean, while Louis still can’t believe he’s off to Vegas. In eight previous years the furthest he has ever been is Barcelona."

The supposed insider added: “Gary was originally planning to be in Mallorca but that’s been changed to London so he can be close to his wife Dawn after the death of their baby Poppy.”
