Alongside the returning Simon Cowell and CherylCole Fernandez-Versini!!!

After widely hyped speculation, singer Rita Ora and BBC Radio 1 DJ and singer Nick Grimshaw have been announced as the new judges for The X Factor UK.

The duo will be replacing original judge Louis Walsh, and last season's addition, Spice Girl Melanie B.

On her arrival to the program, Rita said:

"I am excited to be coming back to The X Factor - I had a ball here in 2012. This is a journey I can't wait to embark on to find some talented singers. It's the new generation taking over. Boom!"

Rita appeared as a guest judge back in 2012. 

Grimshaw soon followed up with his own comment:

"I love X Factor and have watched the series religiously since it started, so obviously I'm hugely excited to be joining the show.

"Music is my job and my passion and I'm really looking forward to seeing what talent we can find and nurture this year. I can't wait for Judges' Houses in Oldham!"

The duo will not be the only new additions this upcoming season, as longtime host Dermot O'Leary will be replaced by 'X Factor' finalist Olly Murs and Caroline Flack.
