One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson is set to become a judge on next year’s X Factor, it is being reported. Tomlinson will be helping out Simon Cowell at Judges Houses this weekend.
The news comes after Louis himself admitted he would love to judge the show full time. The 23-year-old told The Sun newspaper he has already discussed that with Cowell.
“It’s definitely something I am thinking about,” he said. I am the biggest X Factor fan and I would love to be there week in, week out and really give that level of passion. I think I would be a decent judge.”
It appears Nick Grimshaw would be the odd guy out if Louis does in fact come on board. Other newbie judge Rita Ora is a possibility, but the fan reaction to Nick has not been the best. So it appears Cowell may be looking to replace him.
The X Factor continues tonight and Sunday on ITV.
