Alexandra Burke's X-Factor return

Alexandra Burke was a surprise judge on this weekend's X-Factor.

The former winner took Kelly Rowland's place on the panel as the American was reportedly too ill to attend.

Kelly is in the States and won't be flying back to the UK until doctors say she's well enough.

Kelly wasn't the only person missing. Ashley quit boyband 'The Risk' and his place went to Ashford Campbell, who was previously a member of eliminated Nu Vibe.

Meanwhile we also got our first look at 'Little Mix'. That's the new name for the band, formerly known as Rhythmix who were forced to change their name following protests from a Brighton charity of the same name that works with disabled and vulnerable
children.
