Lily Allen has shut down the rumours that she will be appearing on the X Factor panel next year, probably replacing Sharon, who in my opinion needs to retire.

The star took to Twitter to dispel the rumours asking why everyone was linking her to the show. But Tulisa done the same thing when she was rumoured to be joining the panel in 2011, so maybe it’s all part of the game.

Lily criticised the show earlier this year for being mean, saying:

When did become alright to f**k with peoples minds? X Factor has got fully mean.

We personally think she would be great on the panel, we need some more honesty on the show!
