Other announcements about the judging line-up will be made in due course.
Craig David and Louis Tomlinson are being lined-up to fill the male vacancy on the panel.
Louis Walsh is good mates with Simon and has been brought back to the show following a sacking on two separate occasions, but it looks like he is now on his way out.
