What would The X Factor be without a little controversy? Rumours about its judging panel circulate well before new seasons start and this year it’s been harder than usual to keep track of all the changes. With Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos (N-Dubz) and Kelly Rowland (Destiny’s Child) now finally confirmed as the 2011 X Factor panel (yep, no sign of Cheryl Cole) we reckon there can’t be much more controversy come. Let’s look back then at the timeline that got us to this point, shall we?
Do you reckon this is the end of this year's X Factor controversy? What could happen next?
