Is Meghan Trainor replacing Cheryl on The X Factor 2016?

Meghan Trainor

Could American singer Meghan Trainor become the next X Factor judge?

The All About That Bass performer appeared twice on last year's series, first as a guest judge alongside Rita Ora and then again in the live shows.

With that in mind, she wouldn't be a totally random appointment to the panel and Meghan herself is SERIOUSLY up for it.

"I would love to do it; I want to do it so bad," she told KISS FM in a chat this week.

She added: "I'm gonna do it, I will, I promise!"

Right now The X Factor is in need of at least two new judges for this year's series with both Cheryl and Nick Grimshaw having confirmed their exits.

While a new face would be nice, rumours suggest we could instead be getting some comebacks.

Former judges Louis Walsh, Sharon Obsourne, Mel B and Nicole Scherzinger have all been variously tipped to return.

"I think it will be Louis [Walsh], Sharon Osbourne, Rita Ora and Simon on X Factor," said BGT's Amanda Holden at yesterday's Britain's Got Talent launch. “I’ll put money on that.”

As yet there's been no official confirmation of any of names for the panel this year.

All we do know is that Dermot O'Leary WILL be back in charge as host having already started filming.
