It looks like The X Factor is getting a lot of fresh blood this season, and we're not just talking about new contestants. According to reports, the judging panel is also in for a shakeup. 

The Irish Sun report that Nicole Scherzinger has been axed from the show. They claim that she was not offered a contract and therefore won't appear on the show this year. 

As the show enters it's fifteenth year, boss man Simon Cowell is keen to completely revamp the ITV show and give it a fresh appeal in a bid to put an end to dwindling views. 

The Irish Sun also claims that although Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne both have contracts to return as judges, bosses are keen to terminate these too and get a whole new panel. 

Louis Tomlinson and Craig David are said to be in the running for a place on the judge's seats. 

Cheryl Tweedy, Kylie Minogue, Alesha Dixon and Mariah Carey are also said to be of interest. 

None of the judges have responded to the comments.
