In news that will surprise precisely zero people, Sinitta will not be joining Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh on the panel this summer.
Instead, Sinitta hinted that Simon Cowell could be back on the show
Speaking at a charity event for the Health Lottery last night, the 'So Macho' singer said: "Nothing's been solidly decided yet...but I kind of do know what is happening and it's exciting.
"I think you guys are going to be shocked. I think it's going to be like, 'Oh really?' But it's not going to be me on the panel."
Although it sounds as though Sinitta is still hopeful, she added: "Ten years later, it's like the biggest joke running, right - 'Sinitta for X Factor judge'. But I would still do it if they asked!"
Sinitta previously claimed that X Factor boss Simon Cowell would be back this year, suggesting that last year's show was the worst ever.
She said: "This has been the worst series ever and Simon wants to come back.
"He has so much affection for the UK show, he is the boss and he wants to be back on UK TV."
