Who looks set to replace Louis Walsh on The X Factor?

The speculation surrounding The X Factor 2014 judging panel has gone into overdrive, as its been revealed that Louis Walsh is out and Jake Shears is in.

Who is Jake Shears you might ask? Well, he’s the lead singer of hit American band, The Scissor Sisters.

It seems that ITV bosses want a complete revamp of the talent show and the Irish judge has become a causality as a result.

Jake has spoken previously of how he would love to be a mentor on the hit show: “I think I’d have a good time. I’d definitely be enthusiastic. I think it’s a really wonderful thing.”

Simon Cowell has been doing is best to keep Louis on the show, but it looks he’s fighting a losing battle.

“ITV aren’t sure about Louis and I think it may be time for a change. Jake really impressed when he was a guest mentor on The Voice, but Louis is very much Simon’s man, so we’ll have to wait and see.”

We just can’t imagine the show without Louis.
