Kelly Rowland quits X Factor UK

Kelly Rowland has confirmed that she WILL NOT return to the judging panel for X Factor 2012.

A statement from her spokesperson said: “After much speculation, we can officially confirm today that Kelly Rowland has decided not to return as a judge again for this year’s UK X Factor.

“Global commitments coupled with the show’s increasing demands this year mean that, despite weeks of deliberation with the show, Kelly has not been able to agree a deal that fits into her autumn/winter schedule, so sadly cannot accept a place on the 2012 panel.

“Kelly thoroughly enjoyed her role as a judge on the show, but felt that if there couldn’t be a workable solution to scheduling issues so that she could effectively juggle her other commitments then she couldn’t wholeheartedly commit to the show this year.”

It’s rumoured that former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue will return to the show.
