Louis Tomlinson odds-on to be new X Factor judge

Leading bookmaker Coral is now odds-on at 1-3 that Louis Tomlinson is a judge on X Factor in the next series later this year following his claims that he would be interested in the role. As soon as One Direction announced that they would take a break as a band, punters were keen to back the Louis to join X Factor where he has been backed all the way from 3-1 down to 1-3.

The latest betting with Coral also suggests Louis Walsh has a chance of returning to the show where he can be backed at 3-1, while Westlife’s Kian Egan is available at 10-1.

“Punters have only had one direction when it has come to who they have wanted to back to replace Nick Grimshaw as an X Factor judge later this year as all the money has come for Louis Tomlinson who is now odds-on to land the job,” said Coral’s John Hill.
