Zayn Malik Denies He'll Be Joining The X Factor Judging Panel
So that's that rumour well and truly squashed...
The former One Direction singer's rep slammed the story, stating it is "a complete fabrication". Sob.
A source had previously told the Daily Star that Zayn's somewhat empty schedule left him the prime candidate for the job, unlike Louis Tomlinson who has a number of commitments.
"Zayn's been told he'd make a great judge and it's him rather than Louis fans really want. Louis and the other boys will be touring next year, too," they said.
Meanwhile Nick Grimshaw is another name in the running to join the show, with the Radio 1 DJ continually expressing his desire to take on the job.
"It's something I would love to do," he told Alan Carr.
Please announce the line-up soon, X Factor, we can't cope with the tension!
