It got me on telly, it did loads of good stuff for me, but I’ve got no desire to go back.” So which show is it Richardson is keen on doing next? “I’ve done my fair share of spin-off shows, they’re really good fun.

It appears the judges are slipping straight back into their old roles judging by the categories they have been chosen to mentor.Simon is mentoring the girls - this is the first time he’s taken on this category as it stands. Sharon is mentoring the overs, arguably everyone’s least favourite category… Rumour had it Louis had flown over to LA for a series of meetings with show boss Simon Cowell, who was said to be 'doing all he can to sign him for the next series'.Nicole returned to the boys, which she’s been mega-successful at in previous years. A source told The Sun before the contract was inked that: 'Louis is up for it.’ rather than begging and crying and all that kind of stuff.
