Kelly Rowland won't be back on next series of X FactorPA

Kelly Rowland says she won't be a judge on the next series of the X Factor.

The American singer was one of three new judges on the last series of the hit show, but it seems that was just a one off.

A spokesman for Kelly says she couldn't arrange enough time in her schedule to fit in filming the hit series.

It's not clear who will replace the Destiny's Child star but it's rumoured that Dannii Minogue could step in and return to the judging panel.

Neither Tulisa or Louis Walsh have confirmed whether they will return but Gary Barlow has signed up for the new series.

There's also the big question of whether Simon Cowell will help pick a winner and be a mentor on the show he created.

Last series he stepped aside to let Gary take his place but lot's of people said the show missed him.
