Secret helpers: Simon's team have picked their pals

The list of stars who will help X Factor judges at their houses has been leaked. And the choice contains a few surprises.

Sources claim that Cheryl’s new best friend Derek Hough will be one and that Simon Cowell has finally dropped Sinitta from the squad.

Louis Walsh is supposedly going to work with former Westlife star Brian McFadden and his girlfriend Delta Goodrem. It’ll be interesting to see what his ex Kerry Katona makes of it.

Apparently Simon has picked music mogul Clive Davis and Destiny’s Child star Kelly Rowland.

Along side her new squeeze Derek, Cheryl will be helped by Nicole Scherzinger. Observers say that could be interesting as the two aren’t thought to be friendly.

And new mum Dannii Minogue has roped superstar sister Kylie and producer Rodney Jerkins to help.


However, the X Factor team refused to confirm or deny these rumours saying that nothing has been confirmed yet.

The fun kicks off on August 21, so not long to wait now.
