X Factor 2015 judges Rita Ora and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini could be set for a chart battle later this year.

Both are preparing to release new albums this autumn and no doubt will each be taking to the stage to plug their latest singles.

The Daily Star newspaper reports that Cheryl has been in the studio over the summer recording tracks for what will be her fifth studio album.

She's said to be working with Grammy Award winning music producer Peter Wade who has previously teamed up with acts including Kylie Minogue and, er, Lindsay Lohan.

The album will come just a year after Cheryl's 2014 release Only Human which was her worst performing to date.

Despite two number ones - thanks to performances on The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent live shows - the album is the lowest selling of Cheryl's discography to date and her latest single from the record managed only Number 70 in the charts.

As for Rita, her second album is due out in November and it will be follow up to her debut called Ora which was released more than three years ago now.

The record will feature her latest singles which include Number One hit I Will Never Let You Down, Poison (3) and latest track Body On Me (23) which features Chris Brown.
