Rita Ora doesn't want X Factor return

ita Ora will never return to "The X Factor".

The "Poison" hitmaker led Louisa Johnson to success in two years ago when she mentored the Girls category on the singing competition in 2015 but, despite enjoying her time on the panel, she's adamant nothing will persuade her to reclaim her judging gig on the show because she likes to do "one series and go in with guns blazing."

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "Every TV show I've been a part of thus far, like "The Voice", "X Factor" and "America's Next Top Model", I've always just done one season. That's becoming sort of my thing. Go in, kill it then leave. I did win the "X Factor". Let's not forget Louisa. I know I love her, my little sister. But I go in with guns blazing. I seriously do. It was so much fun every weekend seeing the gang."

The 26-year-old beauty did a stint on the show as a guest judge before being made a full time panelist but show boss Simon Cowell, 57, didn't like the "gang", which included Cheryl Tweedy, 33, and Nick Grimshaw, 32, at the time.

She said: "Simon has a lot on his plate but as a judge and I was a guest judge in 2012, it was such a great atmosphere that I didn't feel that pressure."

Although she convinced she won't return to "The X Factor", the singer has been announced as the host of the new reality talent show "Boy Band", which will see talent from across America compete to become a member of the next big music group.

Whilst Rita will be serving as the presenter for the show, former Spice Girl Emma Bunton, 41, and Backstreet Boys vocalist Nick Carter, 37, will assume the role of "architects" - the experts who will guide the contestants throughout their journey.
