Kelly Rowland went AWOL from Saturday night's latest X Factor live show and bookies William Hill are now odds-on at 4/7 that she does not to return to the show next year. Perhaps the most exciting news for X Factor fans is that Hills are now 1/8 that Simon returns as a full time judge in time for the start of X Factor 2012.
"Kelly's disappearance was a real shock and we now think that Simon will return as this proves that he cannot run the X Factor UK from the USA!” said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
It could mean another complete panel shake up for the second year in a row after Gary Barlow revealed yesterday he was also unsure of a return next year either.
But rather than new faces, we could see ourselves going back in time, with both Cheryl and Dannii tipped to reprise their roles alongside Simon Cowell!
