The X Factor boss is hoping the former judge can revive a flagging show
Simon Cowell went all guns blazing for the latest series of The X Factor: poaching Rita Ora from BBC’s The Voice; drafting in young audience pleaser Nick Grimshaw; booting old-time judge Louis Walsh from the panel; and sticking with pretty Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
Simon Cowell is calling in old pal Louis Walsh to help with The X Factor's ratings slump
He’s changed the category format, thrown everyone’s favourite presenter, Dermot O’Leary, away and declared war on his Saturday night rival, Strictly Come Dancing.

The music mogul has been given the over-25s to mentor again.
The ‘X-Factor’ judges have been given their categories for this year, with Simon Cowell mentoring the Over-25s for the second year in a row. For the first time ever, this series the fans were given the opportunity to select the judges’ categories, with a vote taking place on twitter over the weekend.
Simon Cowell will mentor the Over-25s again this year.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini was given the Groups, after mentoring the Girls last year, while new judge Nick Grimshaw will mentor the Boys and fellow newbie Rita Ora will take the Girls. After the categories were announced Cheryl expressed her excitement on twitter writing, ‘I GOT THE GROUPSSSSS!!! I am so excited !!’
The ITV talent show suffered a huge drop in ratings on Saturday night and claims that girlband Fourth Power weren't amateurs.
‘The X-Factor’ returned to UK screens on ITV, Saturday night (August 29th), with a revamped judging panel which doesn't seem to have proved a hit with viewers. The talent show scored a record low rating for it’s series premiere, as well as fan backlash over a girl group who have already released records.
According to The Mirror, the revamped show only brought in 7.11m viewers, a drop of nearly two million from last year's launch show. The numbers are the lowest ever launch ratings for the show, since 2012 when 8.62m tuned in.
"Keep your hands off him," the new judge has said ahead of this weekend's 'X Factor' return.
Ora, who joined ‘The X Factor’ judging panel earlier this year, has spent the last week wading through the official auditions for the new series of the reality show that have been going on around the country. She hasn’t liked what she’s seen from some of the female contestants, however…
“I understand the power, it’s Simon with his T-shirt and jeans and all that, I get it. But there’s a limit you have to have, a bit of decorum you need to hold,” the 24 year old admitted.
The talent show returns to our screens this Saturday (August 29th).
‘X-Factor’ viewers have been granted even more power this year, as for the first time ever they’ll be the ones choosing which category each judge will mentor. Voting will open during the show’s first episode this Saturday on ITV and will take place on twitter.
The ‘X-Factor’ judges will have their categories picked for them thanks to a viewer vote.
Viewers will be able to vote by using the hashtag with the name of a judge and the category they want to see them mentor, for example #CherylBoys #CherylGirls #CherylGroups #SimonOvers. Voting closes at 12pm on Tuesday 1 September.

Paloma Faith takes Rita Ora's already-vacated spot; Sir Tom dropped in favour of Boy George for series five in 2016.
The British edition of ‘The Voice’ has revealed its line-up of judges for the upcoming fifth season, with one surprise change in store. As has been widely tipped, Paloma Faith will be taking up the vacant seat left by Rita Ora, who defected to ITV’s ‘The X Factor’ earlier this year.
But, despite recently saying how much he was looking forward to coming back for another season, the legendary Welsh crooner Sir Tom Jones has been axed from the BBC show to be replaced with Culture Club singer Boy George.
Paloma Faith has been confirmed as a judge on 'The Voice UK'
Rihanna is said to be angry at the British singer thanks to her new track ‘Body on Me’.
Another day and it seems another showbiz feud is brewing. Yes the latest stars who allegedly aren't seeing eye to eye are British singer Rita Ora and Rihanna. The two pop stars are said to not be on the best of terms following Ora’s latest single, ‘Body on Me’, which happens to feature Rihanna’s ex Chris Brown.
Has Rita made an enemy of Rihanna?
According to The Sun, Rihanna is none too happy that Ora chose her ex to record a duet with and what makes it worse is that the single’s yet to be released video is said to be pretty steamy. ‘There’s no lost love between them, but this is another example of what Rihanna perceives to be a lack of respect by Rita,’ a source told the newspaper.

First Rita Ora, now it seems Will.i.am is the latest judge to leave BBC talent show ‘The Voice’.
‘The Voice’ judge Will.i.am has reportedly left his role on the BBC talent show after four series. The Black Eyed Peas singer has been with the series since its inception in 2012, but according to a report by the Daily Star he’s become frustrated at the show’s inability to produce a star.
Will.i.am is said to have bailed on the BBC talent show.
A source told the newspaper, "Will has been in discussions with producers but decided he doesn't want to return this year. He’s disappointed Rita Ora left and is frustrated the show has failed to produce an international star.”

Slick direction and meaty performances may be enough for some viewers, but this boxing drama's complete lack of originality keeps it from being something memorable. Centring on a committed performance from Jake Gyllenhaal, it's always watchable, but it's rather annoying that every time an interesting theme is raised the script sidesteps into yet another boxing-movie cliche.
Gyllenhaal plays Billy Hope, an orphan raised in the system who rose to become the world light heavyweight champion. He has savvy wife Maureen (Rachel McAdams) at his side, smart young daughter Leila (Oona Laurence) cheering him on and the fiercest manager (Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson) in the business. But personal failures, unexpected tragedies and financial crises suddenly bring an end to his millionaire lifestyle, leaving him alone and wandering the New York streets in search of a place to live. He seeks help from grizzled gym owner Tick (Forest Whitaker), who helps Billy rebuild himself so he can take on his nemesis (Miguel Gomez).
Billy is such a hot-head that he's not easy to like, continually blowing his top to make everything much worse for himself and his family. Gyllenhaal is an astonishing mass of muscles, scars and tattoos, with a burning inner rage that's startlingly believable. He also works hard to earn the audience's sympathies, despite the blunt superficiality of Kurt Sutter's script. Whitaker's role is even less nuanced; he's little more than the formulaic gruff trainer who's always played by an ageing Oscar winner. McAdams injects some snappy energy in her too-brief role, and it's actually Laurence who emerges as the film's most resonant character, effortlessly stealing her scenes right out from under Gyllenhaal's smashed-in nose.

'X Factor' judge Rita Ora has broken up with partner Ricky Hil, son of fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger.

The former Girls Aloud singer was not happy to hear the dreaded ‘c-word’ during the recent London auditions.
New ‘X-Factor’ judge Nick Grimshaw may have gotten on wrong side of colleague Cheryl Fernandez-Versini already, when he called the singer by her former married name of Cheryl Cole. The slip up occurred during the London round of auditions for the talent show which took place at Wembley earlier this week.
Nick Grimshaw mistakenly called Cheryl by her former married name.
According to fans in attendance Grimshaw referred to the Geordie singer as Cheryl Cole when asking for her opinion after an audition. Cheryl is said to have snapped back, 'It's Cheryl or Chezza!’
The new X Factor judge is rumoured to be doing very well as the funny guy on the panel
If The X Factor knows how to do one thing, it’s how to make headlines and those headlines are rarely about its contestants. When Simon Cowell revealed 2015’s judging line-up, which included himself, stalwart Cheryl, singer Rita Ora and radio DJ Nick Grimshaw, the panel found itself in the limelight and for all the wrong reasons.
Nick Grimshaw is being touted as Simon's new David Walliams on The X Factor
However, the Radio Times has reported that Cowell’s ambitious judging decision has paid off, particularly with his ‘new David Walliams’ - Nick Grimshaw.

The Kosovo born singer missed Friday’s ‘X-Factor’ auditions to receive the honour.
‘X-Factor’ judge Rita Ora has been named an honorary ambassador to the Republic of Kosovo, the country in which she was born. The 24 year old lived in the country’s capital of Pristina before her family moved to London when she was just one year old. Holding back tears the singer said she would wear the title of honorary ambassador ‘with great pride and responsibility’.
Rita Ora has been named an honorary ambassador of the Republic of Kosovo.
The award was bestowed on Ora by Kosovo’s president Atifete Jahjaga, who described the ‘X-Factor’ judge as Kosovo’s most successful artist. “This is amazing. Thank you madam president for this honour,” Ora said appearing at the Kosovan embassy in London

The singer has finally spoken out about her much publicised departure from the BBC talent show.
Former judge on ‘The Voice’ and the newest member of the ‘X-Factor’ panel, Rita Ora, has revealed why she jumped ship from the BBC talent show to its ITV rival. But Ora’s reasoning isn't as interesting as we might have hoped. Speaking at the O2 Silver Clef Awards, Ora blamed scheduling for her decision to switch shows, saying it all had nothing to do with her former colleagues on ‘The Voice’.
Rita Ora is the ‘X-Factor’s’ newest judge.
"It's nothing to do with any of the coaches personally. I love them all. But it's definitely something to fit in with my timetable and my schedule,” Ora said, while picking up the Vevo Best Female prize at the awards on Friday.
She announced in June that she was leaving 'The Voice' to join the ITV reality singing contest instead, but has spoken about her decision for the first time today.
New judge on ‘The X Factor’ Rita Ora has revealed that she couldn’t say no to Simon Cowell’s offer once she had heard about the organisers’ new plans for the reality TV show, and that it was this that was the primary factor in her decision to leave ‘The Voice’.
The 24 year old hitmaker spoke to Lorraine Kelly on the British morning chat show ‘Lorraine’ about her high-profile network switch from the BBC to ITV, saying that she just wanted “to be a part of it” when she heard about the new ideas.

First Paloma Faith, then FKA Twigs and now it's Nicole Scherzinger who joins the running to replace Rita Ora on 'The Voice'.
Nicole Scherzinger could be about to return to the world of TV talent shows, as the former ‘X-Factor’ judge has been named as the latest frontrunner to replace Rita Ora on 'The Voice’.

Is Nicole Scherzinger you new judge on ‘The Voice’?

British pop star Rita Ora has revealed that she’s bought a multi-million-pound home in London, but has ended up giving it to her parents!
24 year old Rita’s mother and father, Besnik and Vera Sahatciu, have effectively been handed the keys to the £1.3 million semi-detached house in North London, because she herself travels so much and doesn’t get to spend enough time in the capital to be able to enjoy it properly.

Another day and another name joins to race to become Britain’s next talent show judge. This time it’s singer FKA Twigs, who’s found herself as the hot new favourite to replace Rita Ora on ‘The Voice’, following the 'Poison' singer's move to the 'X-Factor'.
Will it be FKA Twigs who takes over from Rita Ora on ‘The Voice’?
According to The Daily Star, producers over at ‘The Voice’ want the cool and quirky singer to join next season’s judging panel and bring more musical credibility to the show.

The ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ singer could be ready to take a seat on ‘The Voice’s’ judging panel.
With Rita Ora having just jumped ship to the ‘X-Factor’, BBC talent show ‘The Voice’ has found itself one judge down ahead of its sixth season.

Rita Ora was confirmed as the fourth judge on 'The X Factor's panel for its upcoming 12th series, and the reaction has been mixed to say the least.
Katie Hopkins has become the latest celebrity to launch a criticism of Rita Ora’s accession to ‘The X Factor’s panel, predicting that the pop star will be “hopeless” on the ITV show when it returns in September.
“If her time on ‘The Voice’ is anything to go by, she will be hopeless at telling the truth, congratulate everyone no matter how poorly they perform and fail to get a single act through to the final,” the acid-tongued Hopkins wrote in her regular column in The Sun on Friday (June 19th).

The new judge was unable to ignore a particularly difficult review of her new job
The appointment of Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw to this year’s X Factor has definitely divided opinion but what cannot be denied is that their addition has created a lot of publicity for the talent show.
Rita Ora as a new X Factor judge has not been warmly received by everyone
Good and bad, there have been a lot of thoughts and viewpoints over popstar Ora and radio DJ Grimshaw taking the two spare judges chairs but it seems that when it comes to really negative criticism, Rita Ora simply can’t ignore it.

Is ‘The Voice’ coach Rita Ora the safest bet for the next ‘X-Factor’ judge?
With rumours rife that Rita Ora is about to jump ship from ‘The Voice’ to ‘The X-Factor’, the singer has been given a shining endorsement from one half of the show’s new hosting duo, Olly Murs. Murs will be hosting the talent show’s new season alongside presenter Caroline Flack, but before it gets underway there’s the little matter of who will be joining the judging panel to sort out.
Rita Ora is hotly tipped to become the next ‘X-Factor’ judge.
Ora has become the hot contender to replace Mel B on the panel even though she’ll be coming straight from rival talent show BBC One's ‘The Voice’.

The rapper’s latest album contains some offensive lyrics aimed at singer Rita Ora.
Rapper A$AP Rocky has attacked singer Rita Ora in a track off his new LP, At. Long. Last. A$AP, directing some very offensive and misogynistic rhymes at the British singer. It’s unclear why the rapper has chosen to target Ora on the track, as the pair had appeared to be friends and were never even rumoured to be an item.
ASAP Rocky has some nasty words for Rita Ora.
On ‘Better Days’ the 26 year old Harlem native raps, "I swear that b**ch Rita Ora got a big mouth/ Next time I see her might curse the b**ch out/ Kicked the b**ch out once cause she b**ched out/ Spit my kids out, j***ed up all in her mouth and made the b**ch bounce.”

The singer and ‘The Voice’ judge briefly appears in the erotic hit as Mia Grey.
You’d be forgiven it you failed to catch Rita Ora’s brief appearance in Fifty Shades of Grey, after all there was a lot more interesting things going on in that movie. But despite having less than 60 seconds of screen time as Mia Grey, the singer has revealed she had to audition just like everyone else to get the part.
Yes Rita did appear in Fifty Shades of Grey
Speaking to InStyle magazine Ora said, “I heard about the audition and I approached Sam Taylor-Johnson with ideas for the soundtrack. I said I'd love to involved as I was such a fan of the book. And then Sam said, "Well, why don't you audition?””
The 24-year-old singer recently opened up about facing rejection throughout her career, but using these failures as motivation.
Rita Ora is one of the most popular British female singers in the music industry today, and although she is only 24-years-old, the multitalented star's success didn't happen overnight, but her failures only fuelled her desire.

After all the hype, it's impossible not to expect steam from this adaptation of E.L. James' mommy-porn bestseller, but the average episode of Red Shoe Diaries is friskier than this movie. Still, it's a well written and played drama, building an unusual romance with a series of scenes that are sometimes sexy but never actually transgressive. And the nicest surprise is that in the hands of director Sam Taylor-Johnson it becomes a witty tale of female empowerment.
It's set in the American Northwest, where Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) is finishing her studies as an English literature major when she's asked by her journalist roommate Kate (Eloise Mumford) to interview Seattle's most eligible bachelor, billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). Ana's awkwardly confident approach immediately gets under his skin, and he pursues her as if she's a corporate acquisition, complete with non-disclosure agreements and a contract that would make her submissive to his dominant. But she isn't so sure about all of this, and as she falls for him, she begins to make him break his own rules. Of course he thinks she should be punished for that.
Essentially, this film is mere foreplay, as the push and pull between Ana and Christian cycles through various set-pieces on the way to an ending that is clearly designed to get fans in a lather for films based on the second and third novels in the trilogy. And the studio would be wise to keep Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr Banks, another story of male-female control) on board, as they have clearly beefed up James' novel with a strong dose of wry humour, bringing out the deeper themes rather than focussing on the under-developed plot and characters.
Continue reading: Fifty Shades Of Grey Review
When reserved college girl Anastasia Steele meets mysterious businessman Christian Grey for an interview, she ends up feeling rather foolish, fearing that she's messed up the opportunity. Mr. Grey doesn't see it that way however; on the contrary, he develops a strong romantic fixation with her. Anastasia is flattered, but soon realises that this guy isn't the sort to take her to take her out for romantic meals or shower her with gifts. Nonetheless, he is an enigmatic presence in her life that she cannot hope to resist, and she soon finds herself treading deeper and deeper into this man's life. As their relationship progresses, he reveals his unusual sexual desires which involves Anastasia signing a written document in order to give him permission to do whatever he likes with her. Enchanted and seduced by the sense of unknown that lies ahead, she agrees.
The most anticipated film of 2015 has ramped up excitement even further
It's finally here! Fifty Shades of Grey, the most talked about book of 2011, has finally made it to the big screen complete with its infamous 'red room', copious amounts of sexual naughtiness and Britain's very own poplet, Rita Ora.

Audiences watching the Golden Globes on Sunday will have spotted the international debut of the much anticipated movie's newest trailer which sneaks a peak into the sexual awakening of student Anastasia Steele after meeting S&M loving billionaire, Christian Grey.

Sometimes, a single favour to a friend can end up changing you entirely. When a young literature student, Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) attends an interview on behalf of her sick friend, she is totally unaware of the consequences. Steele meets with the illusive, enigmatic and intimidating young billionaire businessman, Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), and almost immediately finds herself wildly attracted to him. Grey is insistent on controlling every aspect of his life, business and personal feelings, yet Steele represents a problem for him: he, too, is attracted to her, yet it is because of her free nature. As the couple clash, their futures are thrown into jeopardy with the revelation that neither of their lives will ever be the same again.
The 1D star is annoyed at the BBC show for continually criticising 'The X Factor'.
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson is tired of ‘The Voice’ continually slagging off ‘The X Factor’. Ahead of the BBC’s flagship talent contest making its reappearance this Saturday (January 10th), the boyband member suggested that there wasn’t even a contest between the two programmes.
The 23 year old star aired his grievances on Twitter, where he vented: “Is bad mouthing The X Factor the only way The Voice knows how to promo their show? #everyyear.” Later, he said: "it's like Accrington Stanley trying to compete with Real Madrid.”

And the winner of the most dedicated method actor award goes to... Jake Gyllenhaal!
Jake Gyllenhaal is a shape shifter. There is no other explanation. We barely recognised him whilst he was filming 'Nightcrawler', with his sunken cheeks and generally gaunt demeanour, but now he's transformed yet again into a sinewy muscle-man for his forthcoming boxing drama 'Southpaw'.
Gyllenhaal looks completely different to usual
He's never exactly been a typecast actor, but it seems Jake Gyllenhaal can literally perform in any role. He can be unnerving ('Donnie Darko'), not to mention dedicated ('Brokeback Mountain') and now it seems he can manipulate his body in a matter of months. He lost thirty pounds to play the creepy, morally corrupt crime journalist Lou Bloom in Dan Gilroy's latest movie 'Nightcrawler', and now he's picked up his calorie intake and bulked up immensely to play a middle weight boxer in Antoine Fuqua's 'Southpaw'. We only wish we had that much self-discipline!
