Apparently Louis Walsh is being paid £880k to rejoin The X Factor Panel. We hoped for the other Louis…

The rumour mill is hard at work again, spouting out accusations and whatnot. This time it’s another X Factor rumour involving Louis. That’s Walsh, not Tomlinson. Boo.

With Grimmy leaving the panel after one series, the question on everyone’s lips is ‘who the bloody hell is the new judge gonna be?!’ Well, according to this latest chitter chatter, it’s none other than OG X Factor judge, Louis Walsh!

It’s been said that Mr Cowell and Mr Walsh have been recently holding “protrated informal talks” about a possible comeback deal.

I sneaky source spoke to The Mirror, saying “Simon and Louis work really well together. He provides a perfect foil for Simon.

“They’ve had a couple of phone conversations and it’s looking as if a deal will be done, although no paperwork has yet been signed.”

Look, we know Louis Walsh has history with the show and all that but times have changed, people have become available. Such as another Louis. In the form of Tomlinson. And though there hasn’t been any official talks about him being on the show, we know that Tommo is up for the role and so are we.  Come on, Uncle Si. You know it makes sense.

Who are you hoping to see take the seat on the panel? Walsh or Tommo? Tweet us @maximumpop and let’s discuss.
