As a judge on fellow ITV talent show Britain's Got Talent, the lovely Alesha knows a thing or two about judging AND fashion so if she's excited, then we definitely are!
Chatting to Capital FM's Max on her YouTube blog, Alesha said of Rita and Cheryl joining the X Factor judging panel:
"It's brilliant. I love it. I'm genuinely looking forward to the show this year. Rita is the queen of experimenting with fashion so she will make it very entertaining for us, and Cheryl, we just love to look at her.
"She always looks beautiful and chic and effortless so for us it will be brilliant. And I think they are girls' girls so I think they will get on, respect each other and the dynamic and balance will be nice."
Rita and Cheryl will join BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host and Simon Cowell on the judging panel this year, with Rochelle Humes and KISS FM's Melvin Odoom hosting Xtra Factor and Caroline Flack and Olly Murs taking the reigns on the main show.
