The grime star will appear on the show as judge Nicole Scherzinger’s guest.

Stormzy is joining The X Factor as a guest judge.

As BBC Newsbeat reports, the London rapper will travel to South Africa to assist judge Nicole Scherzinger in deciding which acts go through to live shows.

A source told Newsbeat: “Stormzy is the man of the moment and he’ll be great.”

“He speaks straight from the heart and won’t pull any punches. Simon is looking forward to seeing his onscreen chemistry with Nicole.”

Stormzy recently lost out on winning the 2017 Mercury Prize, which was awarded to Sampha for his debut album Process.
