Simon Cowell has predicted he's in for a "rough ride" on the new series of X Factor.

The music mogul will join Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora on the judging panel when the ITV show returns this autumn.

In a statement today, he joked it had "taken a while" but he was happy to confirm Rita and Nick were the new judges, adding: "The combination of Nick, Cheryl and Rita is going to be a lot of fun!

"They all bring a lot of enthusiasm and passion for music to the show. I have a feeling I am in for a bit of a rough time but sometimes you have to embrace the craziness and now, with luck, we hope to find a star."

Simon will be hoping for another win after leading van driver Ben Haenow to success on the 11th series of X Factor last year.
