It’s looking like Nick Grimshaw could have his X-Factor judging badge revoked next season in place of Tony Hadley.

Simon Cowell has reportedly been eyeing up the Spanau Ballet star since his appearance on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity..Get Me Out Of Here.

Grimshaw – who hosts BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show – only joined the talent competition this year, after replacing Mayo-born Louis Walsh.

According to Ladbrokes, Hadley has a 10/1 chance of filling the seat next to Rita Ora.

“Simon told me, ‘This is the nature of the beast’ – you’re in the goldfish bowl, everyone has something to say, ”  revealed Nick.

The X-Factor Final returns to ITV1 and TV3, Saturday at 8 pm.
