Louis Walsh has gone and basically told the nation that Nick Grimshaw is actually going to be an X Factor judge.

In a video to Nick he said the words:

“So you’re a DJ and now you’re going to be a judge. Nothing wrong with two jobs.”


So Lou-Lou just basically confirmed the rumours – but do we believe him?

It seems that Louis won’t be appearing on The X Factor this year, as he told the Press Association:

"I haven't been sacked… I can honestly tell you that. But I'm not hanging around for them this year because I want to go back to being a manager… But I wasn't sacked, I haven't been hired and I'm not hanging around."

So it looks like there’s a vacant spot on the judging panel.

Louis signs off to Nick with the words: “I think you should start wearing some better clothes, change the haircut and off you go.”

Miaow. Is someone being a bit frosty?
