The X Factor press launch is only days away and Rita Ora is unable to attend. This will come as a blow to X Factor bosses as they will want to show off the new judges.
Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick Grimshaw, Olly Murs, Caroline Flack and Xtra hosts Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom are expected to attend the event this coming Wednesday.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “It was a real blow."It is always a glitzy occasion and the stops have been pulled out as everyone wanted to celebrate the new judges. It won’t have the same impact if one of them isn’t there.
A spokesperson for The X Factor told the paper last night: “Rita is unable to attend the Press launch as she is on tour in the US, organised prior to signing up.”
We will be at the event on Wednesday bringing you photos and updates, if you have any questions for the judges and hosts let us know.
