It's a No for Nick!

Get prepared to have your Saturday nights taken over by bad singers, outrageous outfits, and long winded sob stories as the X-Factor returns to our TV screens this weekend. This year though you may notice some rather big changes to the nations favourite music talent show. First off Louis (you’re the next big popstar!) Walsh has finally been given the heave-ho after 11 long years in favour of the younger trendier Nick Grimshaw, host of the Radio 1 breakfast show. Also gone is the very feisty Mel B who has been replaced by the friendlier Rita Ora. Simon Cowell & Cheryl are the only two familiar faces on the show as even the host of eight years Dermot O’Leary has been ditched for former contestant Olly Murs and last year’s Strictly Come Dancing winner Caroline Flack. 

As well as changes to the judging panel and presenters the decision on which judge will mentor which group will now be left in the hands of the public. Before we head to the glamorous locations for the judges houses round, viewers will be asked to choose which judge they want to mentor which group, which includes the boys, the girls, the over 25’s and the groups.

So what do we think of this year’s judging panel? Are they trustworthy and would you buy a car from them?​​

Last week we decided to conduct a poll asking people to choose which judge they were most likely to buy a car from. The first few days saw Cheryl taking the lead with Simon hot on her Louboutin heels. As the week went on Simon took the lead before new judge Rita Ora began to take over him. Sadly for Nick Grimshaw he only managed a pit-full 10% of the votes making him the person that our customers and staff are ‘LEAST’ likely to buy a car from.

Not so sad news for best pal and former Voice judge Rita Ora as she was chosen as the judge people were ‘MOST’ likely to buy a car from taking a massive 49% of the overall vote

Simon Cowell surprisingly came in second place with 27.5%, which may give doubt to his nasty image if people trust him to sell them a car! His sidekick Cheryl came in third place with 26.8% suggesting that she may no longer be the nation’s sweetheart.

So there is it Rita Ora seems to be the most trustworthy judge according to our poll, while Nick Grimshaw is the least likely. Could this mean that new girl Rita is on course to win this year’s X-Factor and knock Cheryl off of her perch as favourite???
