Louis Walsh Won't Quit The X Factor - Caroline Flack
The Xtra Factor host gives her two cents on 2014 panel, and admits girl crush...
Caroline Flack has declared that she reckons Louis Walsh will stay on The X Factor next year, despite previously saying he was leaving the show.
The Xtra Factor presenter, who has recently been promoted to help Dermot O'Leary on the main show, told Digital Spy that she doubted veteran judge Walsh would really retire.
Asked if she thought it would be his last year, she said: "I don't think it will be, I don't think it'll be the same without Louis. He's like part of the furniture, ain't he?"
Louis has already began publicly backtracking on his previously firm stance regarding the current series being his last. It is his 10th year on the show.
And comments from radio DJ Chris Evans suggest that Gary Barlow could be joining Sharon Osbourne in leaving the judging panel after this series.
The Flackster also admitted that she had been developing a girl crush on judge Nicole Scherzinger - and was backing her to win again this year.
She explained: "I wouldn't be surprised if Nicole got the double whammy and won again. There's something in her. She's just amazing.
"She's a girl's girl. It's impossible to fall out with Nicole, you just couldn't.
"She doesn't have a bad word to say about anybody. It's not in her. She's so nice.
"I think I'm obsessed with her. [It's like] Single White Female. I'll start getting long black hair."
