Alesha Dixon is reportedly set to join The X Factor 2016 this year for judges' houses.

It's been reported that the Britain's Got Talent panellist will join Louis Walsh at his judges' houses, set to film later this month.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, Simon is over the moon to have secured Alesha for the show after she reportedly turned down a spot as a judge in the past.

A source told the tabloid: “Simon is thrilled that Alesha finally said yes to being a part of The X Factor. He has wanted her to be involved with the show for years."

They added: "After poaching her from Strictly she preferred judging on Britain’s Got Talent but now she will be part of the X Factor family."

Other names rumoured for judges' houses include former winner Shayne Ward, who has also been tipped fora role at judges' houses with Louis.

Reports suggest that Shayne may appear alongside his former mentor as part of the Irishman's 'crew' during the next stage of filming.

And Shayne may not be the only former X Factor star making a return for judges' houses soon.

It was previously reported that Cheryl will be joining Simon Cowell at his judges' houses this year.

As it stands the panel have so far filmed the auditions, bootcamp and Six Chair Challenge with now six acts left in each category, although rumours are they may each get a wild card act.
