X Factor 2016: Did Simon Cowell make a mistake by not bringing Dannii Minogue back?

Simon Cowell has chosen his new X Factor judges but has he made a big mistake?

Yesterday saw the X Factor panel for 2016 finally confirmed after months of rumours and speculation.

As we already knew, Cheryl, Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw were all out.

And in their place are a trio of familiar faces with former judges Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh all returning.

However some reckon that Simon should have got Dannii Minogue on board instead, especially with her schedule free after leaving the Aussie version of X Factor.

One of those backing Dannii is former winner Matt Cardle who claimed that Simon has made a "huge mistake".

Matt told The Sun newspaper: "I adore Simon but I think he's made a huge mistake not bringing Dannii back.

"Dannii was the only judge who really cared about her acts in the year I won."

Whether or not Simon's choices for this latest X Factor panel revamp prove a hit remains to be seen with the series not kicking off until the autumn on ITV.

But speaking earlier this year, Simon promised a 'best of X Factor'.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I like reunions and I like the idea of what I like to call ‘The best of’ the X Factor."

We definitely reckon Dannii would've have been brilliant once again, but at the same time can't really complain about the new line up either.

What do you reckon? Tell us in the comments below!
