Wow! Not bad replacements, considering the show will be losing TWO huge assets!

Now that Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell have both left the UK X Factor in order to participate in the judges panel on the US edition, there has been just as much strife across the pond behind the scenes of the reality competition, as producers have scrambled to find two new panelists that can successfully fill the void left by the reality honcho and the former Girls Aloud singer!

However, today, Cowell announced that none other than Take That singer Gary Barlow was in advanced negotiations to take his spot, while reports surfaced that Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon would fill Chezza's!

Cowell revealed:

"Gary Barlow is the first person confirmed."

And a source close to Dixon explains:

'He [Cowell] has spent weeks handpicking the right people - he's a perfectionist who changes his mind by the hour. There have been heated debates and disagreements almost every day between Cowell, ITV and senior executives over who they need to sign up to give it some stardust. Alesha is ecstatic. She never thought in a million years that she would be asked. But talks have been on for weeks and have been going well. She has had meeting with ­producers and realises it’s her dream job – an offer she can’t refuse. She’d be sad to turn her back on Strictly, but X Factor is in a completely ­different league.'

Meanwhile, an X Factor spokesperson says:

‘The panel for the UK will be announced in due course.'

Wow! Well - if this pans out the way it did stateside, then we think we pretty much have our new judges!

Here's hoping BOTH new teams will have as much success as the former!

Our fingers are crossed!

What do U think?? Who do you want to see take over for Simon and Chezza??

    Your fake attempts at caring are truly astounding. Both X factors are gonna bomb. Heard they had problems with the audience on the first day of judging in LA. Producers had to ask them to stop booing contestants!

    I hope these shows do die off..They produce rotten talent in most cases…Exceptions being Leona Lewis and one or two others…They are far too commercial…Brilliant white smiles,Plastic surgery and out there depth Judges..No example for young people who have talent…It is just a super karaoke show in most cases!
