Looks like Calvin Harris really is doing X Factor Judges' Houses

Unless sitting side by side with Nicole Scherzinger in a swanky French villa is just an average day for Calvin...

Calvin Harris has all but confirmed rumours he's joining Nicole Scherzinger for X Factor Judges' Houses this year.


The DJ shared a video on Snapchat of him with the former Pussycat Doll in France. And, unless they generally just sit go abroad and sit side by side like this to chat about the weather and what not, it looks very much like a JH set up. Although no-one is wearing a leaf bikini. More's the pity, eh Sinitta?

Scherzinger has already accidentally revealed which category she's mentoring this year. The former Pussycat Doll was openly talking about it at the show's launch before realising she wasn't supposed to. But here she's a bit more coy.

"I'm mean, we're just chilling at my villa here in the South of France," she says, to which Harris replies, "It's quite nice".

We're not fooled.

In other Judges' Houses news, Robbie Williams is expected to join Sharon Osbourne, while former judge Cheryl is hotly tipped to be helping Simon Cowell out, with both sessions being be held in LA. And while we were originally told Louis Walsh was to team up with several guests including a former winner of the show, it actually appears to be 2014 runner-up Fleur East, as well as Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon, who joined the returning judge in Ibiza.

We asked Louis at the launch if he cut any shapes on the dance floor. Check out the interview below.


The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday at 8:00pm on ITV
