Kelly Rowland has been tight-lipped about her future

Say it ain't so! Just as we've fallen in love with her, Kelly Rowland might head home...

After her success on the UK show, Simon Cowell's said to be keen to get Kelly on the US X Factor panel next year - and in a bizarre job swap, Nicole Scherzinger, 33, could come over here.

Our source says: 'Simon thinks she'll be amazing on the US show.

'Nicole's had a mixed reaction in the US, so there's talk of a job swap.'

Kelly, 30, has been reticent when asked whether she'll return to the UK show next year.

An X Factor spokesperson says: No decisions have been made regarding next year's UK or US shows.'
