Rita Ora turned down a full-time judging job on the next series of The X Factor, according to reports.
The singer's comments, to the Daily Mirror, fuelled speculation that one of the current line-up of Louis Walsh, Tulisa, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger will be axed.
"There were talks," the star was quoted as saying about discussions which apparently took place in the past few months.
"But if I were to take on that role it would have to be at a point when I could give it my full attention."
Rita, who was a guest judge on the last ITV series, added: "I have so much to accomplish first and it's kind of a full-time job being on X Factor."
