Louis Walsh will reportedly be given his marching orders ahead of the new series of The X Factor.
Acccording to the Daily Star Sunday, Louis role will reportedly be filled by former Take That frontman Robbie Williams.
Louis is the longest serving X Factor judge, a regular on every series of the show since it began in 2004. Louis was infamously sacked in 2007 and replaced by American choreographer Brian Friedman, but quickly got back his seat on the panel after a few weeks.
A source told the paper: “Simon is planning major changes for this year’s X Factor and one of them is getting rid of Louis.
“It’s not 100% finalised yet but Simon knows he needs to make the show current and credible and Louis no longer ticks those boxes.”
