X Factor spoilers: Simon Cowell's guest stars for judges' houses 'revealed'

x factor 2018 judges glam cuts - 16

Simon Cowell is set to be joined by a whole host of guests for judges' houses on The X Factor.

Typically the show's mentors are only joined by one or two guest judges, to help pick their finalists for the live shows.

But Simon is said to have booked a whole host of stars to get advice from.

They reportedly range from X Factor favourite Sinitta and Simon's partner, Lauren Silverman to American Idol star Adam Lambert and past X Factor winner Leona Lewis.

Former American Idol judges Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, radio host Ryan Seacrest and musician Babyface are also said to have helped out Simon.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Simon really had people who know what the X Factor is in a singer.”

Another rumour has it that the BGT judge David Walliams will prove to be another unusual choice to help Simon.

A source told The Sun newspaper previously: “Producers want to push a fun side on the show and know David will bring the comedy and banter, ­especially with his ribbing of Simon.

“He’s so unpredictable so no doubt he will have some tricks up his sleeve.”

Last month, the locations of this year's judges' houses stage were apparently revealed.

The 2018 series sees three new X Factor judges as Ayda Williams, Robbie Williams and Louis Tomlinson join Simon on the show.

Usually judges' houses sees the panel fly out the acts in their categories to exotic locations around the world.

But 2018 will be slightly different, as it's reported that three of the four will take place in LA.

Simon, Ayda and Robbie will all be heading to California in the US, the Daily Star on Sunday claim.

One Direction star Louis is said to be planning to fly his acts out to Barcelona. He's tipped to be joined by another member of 1D to help pick his finalists.

The X Factor airs Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
