‘Alesha has the best laugh in show business. I need to bottle it up and take it out whenever I’m down,’ a fan posted. ‘Keep Alesha on X factor that laugh’.

And it wasn’t Nicole that got the brunt of the social media commentary, Sharon also received some backlash when Alesha covered her spot, with one writing: ‘Am I the only one that likes Alesha/Nicole/Simon and Louis as a panel… #xfactor’.  

Her appearance came after she was forced to replace Nicole for the Manchester auditions due to prior work commitments.

The Pussycat Dolls singer had pulled out of judging auditions due to a previous ‘diary appointment’ and sources at the time claimed bosses were ‘gutted’ by the decision, but felt Alesha was the perfect replacement due to her ‘wealth of experience’.

An X Factor spokesperson told The Sun: ‘Alesha is guest-judging for the first day of the Manchester auditions as Nicole is unable to film that day due to a previous diary commitment.’

While a source added to the paper: ‘Everyone is gutted that Nicole won’t be joining them, but Alesha has a wealth of experience from her role on BGT and her own pop career so will do a great job filling in.’ 

Alesha also filled in for show matriarch Sharon, who was seen jetting back home to Los Angeles after struggling with back problems, at the Edinburgh auditions.

An X Factor spokeswoman told the publication: ‘Unfortunately, Sharon is suffering from niggling back problems following surgery earlier in the year and will be unable to take part in the Edinburgh auditions. Alesha will be guest judging on the panel today.’
