One Direction fans are in for a big surprise on The X Factor, as Louis Tomlinson is set to reunite with one of his former bandmates at Judge’s Houses.
According to The Sun, Liam Payne is in talks to fly out to join Louis at his judge’s house in the coming weeks – which is sure to make a lot of 1D fans very happy.
The popular boyband split in late 2015, and fans have been eagerly anticipating a reunion ever since.
A source said: “Louis really trusts Liam’s opinion so is hoping they can organise their
diaries to pull it off.”
Meanwhile, it’s been reported that Louis’ fellow judges Robbie Williams, Ayda Field and Simon Cowell have grown concerned over 1D’s seriously dedicated fanbase.
The judges fear Louis’ loyal followers will “fix” the vote every week by voting for whoever’s in his category, just because he’s their mentor.
An X Factor source told The Sun: “There is genuine concern over how the voting could pan out this series.
“Louis has a massive fan base behind him who are very passionate about making sure he succeeds at everything he does.”

“The other judges have been quietly talking about how Louis’ fans are going to swing the vote in his favour, no matter what they do with their own contestants.”
The source added: “His fans have proved their strength on social media before with fan-voted awards he has been nominated for, and they will support his acts here too.”
This year – Louis has the boys category, Simon has the girls, Robbie has the groups and Ayda has the overs.
