X Factor 2018: Liam Payne tipped to join Cheryl at Judges’ Houses!

Liam Payne has been tipped to be Cheryl’s partner at Judges’ Houses for the 2018 series of The X Factor.

X Factor host, Dermot O’Leary has said that Cheryl will return to the show for the up-coming series.

Cheryl is currently raising nine-month-old son Bear with boyfriend Liam Payne – Cheryl joined Simon Cowell for judges’ houses on last year’s series.

Dermot was quoted by the Metro confirming Cheryl’s return to The X Factor 2018: “Cheryl’s going to come back,”

With Cheryl’s return to the X Factor panel now confirmed, bets are being placed on who she’ll call upon for a helping hand at Judges’ Houses – Her future hubby Payne is the early favourite.

Nadine Coyle is second in the betting at 7/2 to join Cheryl in whittling down her acts for Live Shows, with other ex-band members Sarah Harding, 5/1, Nicola Roberts, 7/1, and Kimberley Walsh, 10/1, all priced to make an appearance.

Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Cheryl may have to book a babysitter for Saturday nights as it looks as though both her and Liam are likely be engaged with X Factor duties.

“Payne is a big even-money fancy to join Cheryl at Judges’ Houses, well clear of 7/2 second favourite Nadine Coyle.

“Coyle is the shortest price of any Girls Aloud member, while Kimberley Walsh is the least fancied of Cheryl’s bandmates at 10/1.”

Simon has recently teased a huge lineup for the new series of the X Factor, but nothing has confirmed by ITV yet.

Simon told The Sun: “In the past I’ve had to beg ­people to do the show, and it wasn’t always that easy. People would do it for a ­season, and say, ‘Right, I’m not coming back.’

“But now it’s easier to do the show, it’s much more fun. Maybe I’ll have five people on the panel.”

The X Factor returns later this year to ITV.
