Demi will be the only judge from last year, bar Simon, to return to the show – L.A. Reid and Britney Spears have since parted ways with the competition.

Demi gushed: “I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on The X Factor.

“Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel.”

She told the magazine: “I don’t think I was ready when I started The X Factor. In an ideal situation I would have maybe waited a year or more.

“I dived into work really quickly and maybe that wasn’t the best idea at the time…”
