Louis Walsh is reportedly returning to the X Factor judging panel this year.
The 64-year-old took a break from his eleven year stint as a judge in 2015, and returned alongside Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne in last year’s season of the popular talent show.
Louis, along with fellow judges Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Simon Cowell are all said to be taking up their seats on the judging panel for X Factor 2017.
“The chemistry was perfect last year, so it’s only natural to want to bring the same line-up together again.” a source told The Sun.
“It’s usually hard to get people’s schedules to align but for the first year it has worked out. The judges can’t wait to get started and have already been gossiping behind the scenes.”
We’re delighted to see Louis returning to his judging seat!
