If the rumours are to be believed, returning X Factor judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole are picking this year's remaining two judges - and feelings over Louis Walsh's return aren't the same.
Cowell is said to want Louis to stay on the panel. Mr Walsh having been there from day one, with ten series under his belt. But Cole isn't sure. The pair of course have a history, not just from the X Factor, but from his involvement with band Girls Aloud.
Walsh himself has swung between leaving and wanting to stay. But it would be wrong to have the show without him, wouldn't it?
