Simon Cowell has revealed that Louis Walsh may return to the new series, but Nick Grimshaw isn’t going anywhere.
Simon Cowell has added fuel to the fire of rumours with his latest confession about The X Factor 2015.
It’s been reported that Louis Walsh has been asked to return to take part in the live shows this autumn as a ‘fifth judge’.
Simon told Daily Mirror newspaper: “And by the way, when I say these things, sometimes I’m thinking, I’ve got to ask about 25 people here, and half of them will go no, but I just put it out there anyway, because we like to try new things.”
“And hopefully some things will be a surprise, but you’ve got to be fearless when you do these types of things, and you’ve got to have a sense of humour.”
He added: “If I thought the viewers would like to see him on some of the live shows, why not?”
It has been rumoured that Nick will be kicked from the judging panel and replaced by Louis, although Simon has denied it.
