Say What!? Louis Tomlinson Is The Bookies' Favourite To Join X Factor
One Direction star reportedly in pole position to replace Louis Walsh...
Attention Directioners! It seems Louis Tomlinson could be branching out into the world of TV talent show judging, if the bookmakers are correct.
Bookies have got the One Direction heart throb as the hot favourite to join the judging panel of The X Factor - the show which brought the band to fame - potentially replacing his namesake Louis Walsh.

The Mirror reports that Ladbrokes have placed the singer at 7/4, narrowly ahead of Robbie Williams at 2/1 - and his former bandmate Zayn Malik at a longer 12/1.
Ladbrokes' Alex Donohue commented: "Walsh has been dropping hints for years but it finally looks like all retirement bets are off. When it comes to his replacement, the odds suggest One Direction may lose another member."
One Direction's current touring schedule has them "On The Road Again" until the end of October - which would certainly clash with the 2015 series of X Factor.
And the remaining four band members recently vowed that they were 100 per cent committed to staying together.
