Robbie Williams And Cheryl Cole In X Factor Betting
Pop stars are among the favourites to take Louis Walsh's seat next year...
Louis announced this week that the current 10th anniversary series will be his last - and bookies have wasted no time in opening a book on who will take his seat in 2014.
The Robster is the hot favourite, with odds of 6/1, while Mel B and Rita Ora are close behind on 7/1.
Chezza and show boss Simon Cowell are close behind on 8/1.
There are likely to be two vacancies on the panel next year, with Sharon Osbourne having indicated that she's only coming back for the 2013 series.
A spokesman for Ladbrokes told The Mirror: "The X Factor judging panel is in disarray. If we thought it was hard enough to get four judges together for this year's series, 2014 is looking like a whole different ball game.
"The early money suggests punters would love to see Robbie or Mel B spice up X Factor next year."
