Judge Kelly Rowland isn't handing over her girls without a fight
Bosses are said to be planning a twist that involves the 4 judges surrendering their categories and swapping acts.
‘I don’t want anybody touching my girls,’ Kelly, 30, reportedly said backstage.
‘I’d walk before I gave them up.
‘Everyone’s doing such a good job mentoring their acts, I don’t know why they would do that.’
No date has yet been suggested for the reported shake-up, which is an attempt to boost the programme’s falling ratings.
‘It will be a major test for them as they’ve become too comfortable with their own acts,’ a source tells The Sun.
‘Producers reckon tearing up the format is just the shot in the arm the show needs.’
