X Factor To Announce Mystery Fifth Judge!

X Factor bosses have been teasing fans ahead of the show’s return this Saturday by tweeting about the impending arrival of a mystery ‘fifth judge’… OK. Officially excited.

With the tenth series of the hit ITV show kicking off this weekend (we’ve cancelled our party plans already), a tweet from the official X Factor account yesterday read: “Fifth judge?” alongside a picture of the show’s logo with the words “#FIFTHJUDGE” and this Friday’s date (30.08.13).

A follow-up tweet from the show then announced: “Find out who (or what) the #fifthjudge is on Friday…”. WHAT COULD THIS MEAN?

The 2013 X Factor judging panel currently consists of Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Sharon Osbourne – could they be being joined by the music mogul maestro and soon-to-be-baby-daddy himself Simon Cowell? Tulisa, is it you girl? Or could our Cheryl be hopping back in that swivel chair? We can hardly take the suspense.

Whoever the panel’s mystery addition is, they may have their work cut out when it comes to weasling their way into club coach – returning judge Sharon has been spilling about this year’s gang’s extra special close bond.

“We’re all having such fun together, it’s a pleasure”, she told Digital Spy. “There’s a great chemistry between all four of us, and it feels as though Nicole and I have gone full circle as I originally introduced her to the show when she acted as a guest mentor at my Judge’s House in 2007.”

We’re sure there’s room for one more. Find out who (or what?) the fifth judge is this Friday….
