Natalie Bassingthwaighte looks likely to return to The X Factor, despite being set to give birth to her second child in May.
“I definitely know it is going to be an exciting year for X Factor, that’s for sure,” she told the Daily Telegraph.
“I’d love to do it. I had a really great time last season and I felt like I grew as a judge on the show and I love the challenge.”
Meanwhile the newspaper also keeps up the guessing game on Australia’s Got Talent judges.
The latest rumour concerns Chris Isaak.
It follows previous talk of Sharon Osbourne and an outside shot of Victoria Beckham and Lily Allen.
AGT graduate Timomatic is another name mentioned.
Casting these events is like working with a big wish list on a white board. Once you get one big name it very often means another list is ruled out of contention, to ensure the final mix is diverse and there’s no doubling up of types.
“We won’t be discussing AGT until we have all the judges in place,” a Nine spokeswoman said.
