X Factor 2015 judges: Demi Lovato 'in talks' to join panel

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato is reportedly in talks to join The X Factor 2015.

The former X Factor USA judge is said to be in the running to join the panel this year in place of Mel B.

It will follow the end of her current world tour which finishes in June.

A supposedly "well placed source" told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Simon's management phoned to see when Demi could sign her contract about a week ago.

"They both have busy schedules but she is planning to do it as soon as possible and Simon is eager to get the judging panel sorted."

As it stands there's still no confirmation of ANY of this year's judges, although it's widely expected that both Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole will be back.

Mel B and Louis Walsh's spots on the line up seem a lot more uncertain, especially following this news about Demi.

However as yet no contracts have been signed and so everything is still very much up in the air.

Despite there currently being no judges, open auditions for The X Factor 2015 are well underway.

Try outs move to Manchester this Sunday where Olly Murs and Caroline Flack will both make their first appearances as the show's new hosts.

The pair take over from Dermot O'Leary who stepped down earlier this year after eight years with the show.
