Louis Walsh confirms his return to the X Factor
Simon Cowell has reportedly brought Lous Walsh back to the X Factor judging panel.
At Westlife's Twenty Tour in London this week Louis confirmed to the Mail Online he has signed the contract and will be back this year.
Whether Louis is judging the All-Stars and the celebrity version is unclear, although he is widely expected to be on both.
The judging panel this year is reduced to three members, who will join Louis is unconfirmed although Nicole Scherzinger is the hot choice at the moment.
The stars in the celebrity version are thought to include Gemma Collins, Amanda Holden, Caroline Flack, Megan McKenna and John Barrowman.
Apparently a group is lined up to compete with Love Island stars Zara McDermott, Eyal Booker, Wes Nelson and Samira Mighty.
Are you pleased to see Louis back, let us know on social media.
