Louis Walsh: I'm Staying On The X Factor
Veteran judge reveals that he's got the job and only has to sign the contract...
Louis Walsh has reportedly revealed that he has kept his job on The X Factor.
The 61-year-old Irishman apparently told The Sun that his old pal Simon Cowell has prevailed in his battle to keep him on the ITV talent show's judging panel.
He said: "It is all sorted. I am coming back. I just have to sign the contract."
The news comes in spite of Cheryl Cole reportedly objecting to Walsh's return due to the bad blood from his time managing Girls Aloud.
And ITV bosses were also claimed to want a change of faces to "freshen up" the judging panel.
If Louis does join SiCo and Chezza on the panel there will still be one gap left - and Mel B has been touted as a possible recruit.
