It is fair to say that 2015 has been a very difficult year for the One Direction fans, first with Zayn Malik leaving the band, before the rest of the boys then confirmed that they would take a bit of a break next year. This has led to many rumours and a lot of speculation about what the One Direction boys are going to do on their hiatus.
Well, it looks like Louis Tomlinson could be set to return to the show that made him a global superstar, by becoming a new judge on The X Factor next year. Louis assisted Simon Cowell at the judges houses stage of the show this year, and he has admitted that he would love to be a permanent fixture on the show.
Tomlinson has been quoted as saying, "It’s definitely something I am thinking about. I am the biggest X Factor fan and I would live to be there week in, week out and really give that level of passion. I think I would be a decent judge."
While it is clear to see that Louis Tomlinson is definitely interested in becoming a judge on The X Factor, it seems that his role at the judges houses stage was a bit of a test run for him. According to the recent reports, Louis is all but signed on to become a X Factor judge next year.
A supposed insider explained, "The producers wanted to see how Louis coped during judges’ houses in France. He passed with flying colours. Louis shook hands on a deal informally and it’s now all systems go for next year."
With The X Factor ratings not living up to expectations this year, bringing Louis Tomlinson on board next year would surely give them a much-needed boost. Watch this space!
