Is X Factor Heading In One Direction?

Nick Grimshaw has reportedly left the X Factor and it is One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson who heads the betting to join the judging panel according to William Hill although there has been a move for Zayn Malik to take over.


Louis is a 4/6 shot with his namesake, Mr Walsh the 3/1 and Sharon Osbourne 4/1.


Zayn Malik’s odds meanwhile, have tumbled from 25/1 to 16/1.


“It looks highly likely that Louis Tomlinson will make the move to the X Factor judging panel but if he does not, maybe Simon will bury the hatchet with Zayn and bring him back to the show,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


To replace Nick Grimshaw on the X Factor: 4/6 Louis Tomlinson; 3/1 Louis Walsh; 4/1 Sharon Osbourne; 6/1 Leona Lewis; 6/1 Mel B; 6/1 Robbie Williams; 10/1 Dannii Minogue; 10/1 Paloma Faith; 16/1 Zayn Malik; 25/1 Adele; 25/1 Kanye West
