Louis Walsh is reportedly set to return to the X-Factor judging panel for a duo of new shows.
A source told the Mail on Sunday newspaper that the Irish talent judge will take part in two new talent shows – an All-Star X-Factor reboot and a celebrity singing show.
“Louis actually turned them down twice when they initially approached him to come back,” the source revealed to the newspaper.
“He is in a really good place in his life at the moment. He is working with Westlife, who are in the middle of a sold-out tour.”
“He only decided to go back when Simon flew him to London to convince him that this new run would be fun.”
“He has promised him that it will be like old times and he agreed to sign up.”
It has been reported that Nicole Scherzinger has also been approached for the new shows.
Louis last appeared on the show on the 14th series in 2017.
