EXCLUSIVE! Louis Walsh on quitting The X Factor: “I might come back. You never know”

EXCLUSIVE! Louis Walsh on quitting The X Factor: “I might come back. You never know”

We should have known that when Louis Walsh said he was leaving The X Factor at the end of this series that he would probably change his mind.

Despite Louis telling TV Times at the beginning of August,“I’m happy this is going to be my last year. I’ve been judging X Factor for ten years so I’ve done it all,” Louis seems to have had a possible change of heart.

While we were at the X Factor press conference earlier today, Louis told us exclusively that he hasn’t quit for good.

“I might come back. You never know. Let’s see.”

Woo hoo!

Louis also said last week that if Simon Cowell comes back he might just stick around for a little while longer.

"Now if Cowell came back, I might come back. The two of us, we would not stop laughing. If Simon called me up and said… but, oh well. Let's see what happens.

He added to us: “I’d love him to come back next year, because the show does miss Cowell. And I think Cowell misses the show.”

Louis spent the evening with Simon and his baby mama last night.

“I was out with him and her last night. He’s so happy. I think they’re like the new Posh and Becks!”

So, of course, we had to ask the cheeky Irishman what he’d be buying for Simon’s new baby.

A toothbrush. A big, big toothbrush. Because it’s all about Simon.

OK then…
