Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 31, tweeted that she and Simon Cowell, 55, will be joined by Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw this year.

Following the news Katie, 40, slammed Rita, and branded her 'hopeless'.

Writing in her column for The Sun, Katie said: "If her time on The Voice is anything to go by, she will be hopeless at telling people the truth, congratulate everyone no matter how poorly they perform and fail to get a single act through to the final."

It seems Katie's not the only person disappointed with the new line-up: Rita, 22, took to Twitter this week to hit back, after a journalist criticised her.

She wrote: "But never guess what see you every Saturday night. I know you'll be watching. I'll blow you a kiss. Thanks for making it.

"Journalists please bring positivity back into the world. Don't just try and get readers (if you have any) and waste their brain space with rubbish."

Nick, 30, also faced a slight backlash on social media when the announcement was made, with many slamming news of his appointment as a judge.
