X Factor judge is now ‘done’ with the show

Rumours have been rife that Simon Cowell may be planning a bit of a shakeup on The X Factor, and it looks like we already know one person who won’t be returning for the next season – Louis Walsh.

Louis dropped the bombshell during an interview with TV3, in which he said he is ‘done’ with the show.

“I think I’m done with X Factor honestly. My day job is as a manager, I’ve kind of neglected that. I want to get back to being a manager,” said the 62-year-old.

Admitting that he “never wanted to be on TV”, Louis added that he is looking forward to concentrating on future projects with two of his acts, Shane Filan and boyband Hometown.

Louis appeared to hint that his absence won’t be the only change to the judging panel, saying: “I think they’re going to change it, go for a few new faces.”

Hmm, we wonder if he knows more than he’s letting on.

Recently, we reported that none other than One Direction star Louis Tomlinson was rumoured to be on the list of potential new judges – could he already be lined up to fill Louis place?
