They want him to become a permanent judge.
X Factor fans have called for grime star Stormzy to be made a permanent judge after he made a cameo appearance on Saturday night’s show.
The Big For Your Boots rapper jetted to South Africa to help Nicole Scherzinger choose her three contestants for the competition’s live shows.
But not content with just a brief appearance, viewers on Twitter want the 24-year-old to be handed a permanent role on the ITV programme.

His appearance did not go completely smoothly, however. The X Factor Twitter feed shared a video of the musician startling Scherzinger after a mosquito got a little close to him.

Fans were happy with his advice with one viewer calling his cameo a “win for the punks, the rebels and the underdogs”.
