DJ Calvin Harris seems to have confirmed he will appear at X Factor judges' houses, seven years after a live TV prank incurred the wrath of show boss Simon Cowell.

The Blame hitmaker posted a video to Snapchat of himself and X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger enjoying themselves at a luxury property which seems to be the one that the ITV series is using to host a later stage of the competition.

Harris was reportedly barred from the hit show back in 2009.

He was said to have made an enemy of Cowell by trying to play a practical joke during a performance by then-contestants John and Edward, who are known as Jedward.
