1D At War Over Final Judging Slot

Three of the four seats on the X Factor judging panel are a done deal according to William Hill with Cheryl, Simon & Nick Grimshaw all 1/50 (£50  bet wins just £1). 

Meanwhile the final seat is up for grabs and it is current one Direction band member Louis Tomlinson who is the 4/6 favourite. Whilst the big market mover is former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik who has been slashed from 8/1 to 3/1 today.

“This could be the end of any pretence that the boys are still god friends – especially if Simon chooses Louis over Zayn!” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
