Stacey Solomon reveals why she ‘doesn’t fancy competing’ in X Factor All Stars


Stacey Solomon has ruled out competing on The X Factor’s new All Stars series.

The former X Factor finalist says she’d love to be a part of the new show but “doesn’t fancy” returning to sing.

X Factor’s first ever All Stars special is set to air later this year, following the current Celebrity X Factor airing on ITV.

In an new interview, Stacey has told how Simon Cowell has got in touch with her and she “would definitely support X Factor in any way that I can.”

However Stacey told the Daily Express newspaper: “I don’t fancy competing, I was nervous back then, I don’t know how I would be 10 years later!

“I’ve said to Simon I don’t feel I could do it all over again but both of us should have a role in some way. I love X Factor.”

She added: “It’s the only reason I’m doing what I’m doing today so without that I wouldn’t even be able to be here.

“So yeah, I definitely want to do something with it.”

As yet no names have been confirmed for The X Factor’s All Stars series.

Host Dermot O’Leary recently teased that the spin-off would welcome back “a few of the winners, a few of the sort-of nearly winners and a few of the more eccentric people.”

According to recent tabloid reports, Simon is keen to get a number of big acts back including winner Leona Lewis.

2008 champion Alexandra Burke is also rumoured to be making a return together with Ray Quinn, who was runner up to Leona in 2006.

Wagner, Honey G and Jedward have also been rumoured for a return.

However a number of past contestants, such as Rylan Clark-Neal and James Arthur, have ruled themselves out of competing.

For now, The X Factor returns on Saturday night with its Celebrity series.

This weekend will see who makes it through to the live shows later this year.
