Jahmene Douglas has admitted his dream X Factor panel are mostly all dead.

The singer was runner-up on the show last year, which featured Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa Contostavlos, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh on the judging panel.

Asked about Nicole returning to the ITV show, he said: "I know that she is releasing her album soon so she will probably be promoting that and probably going on tour. I don't know if Tulisa is staying for it.

"I think it would be nice to change it up this year and get Simon (Cowell) back in. I'd like to see Simon and maybe someone like Stevie Wonder as well - get some legends on there."

He admitted: "My dream panel are mostly all dead - people like Whitney Houston and Bob Marley!"

Jahmene, speaking at the Health Lottery champagne tea at Claridge's, London, has almost finished recording his debut album and said that he's still in touch with Nicole, adding: "We're always texting each other... She's still the lovely person that she is."

Sinitta, also at the event, said she thought Simon would be back on the show this year.

"I think he will return in some form... I do have the inside knowledge, I'm not allowed to tell!

"I would love Sharon to come back, I would love Cheryl to come back and Simon too. Louis, Dannii (Minogue) and Nicole but that's too many judges now."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
