Simon Cowell on a possible X Factor return for Louis Walsh: "I don’t know what’s going to happen"
"I couldn't just bring him back... I do like the idea of maybe having a guest judge, something like that, that’s a possibility”
“I like them. I mean they settled in really quickly. The truth is Susanna that when you replace someone like Louis it takes a while for people to get used to the person they’ve really, really liked for 10 years so regardless who was going to come in and take his role there was always, ‘well you’re not Louis’ and you’ve got to give people a little bit of time, but now I’ve got to know him [Nick] as a friend," Cowell explained.
"He’s passionate, he’s fun, loves the job, very different from Louis, but I think he’s doing a good job. And Rita I think is fantastic.”
The X Factor continues with Judges' Houses this Saturday (from 8:00pm) and Sunday (from 7:30pm) on ITV
