TV: The X Factor 2012 – first photo of new judges!
The X Factor 2012 auditions moved to Newcastle today with the official judging line up complete for the first time.
Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa were joined by their new full time judging buddy Nicole Scherzinger.
Nicole signed a deal reportedly worth £750k last week. She replaces Kelly Rowland who quit the show after just one series.
A string of guest judges have been filling in while show bosses found a permanent replacement including Geri Halliwell, Leona Lewis and relative newcomer Rita Ora.
Nicole has previously appeared on the UK show as a guest and took up a full time position on the first series of The X Factor US last year. She left the show along with Paula Abdul and host Steve Jones after just one series.
The X Factor returns to itv1 in August.
