Louis might return to the X Factor… BUT only if he likes the judges

by

As Dermot O Leary has confirmed his comeback to The X Factor, we all have eyes on Louis Walsh.

The music manager admitted to the Herald that if the judging panel is right, he might consider stepping back onto the show.

However, he also revealed that he'd step away if Cheryl VF was asked back to this year's panel.

"She doesn’t give me the fun that Sharon Osbourne gives me or Nicole Scherzinger gives me,” he told the newspaper.

“For me, they’re the two best judges ever and I like Mel B. She was great fun. And Gary Barlow too.”

The 63-year-old recently sent rumours flying as he met with Simon Cowell for a lengthy dinner, so the possibility of Louis making a comeback looks pretty strong.

As the live auditions are taking place in Dublin next month, we're thinking the panel will have to be announced very soon.
