Great news UK 'X Factor' fans; "I'm back!" These are the words of music manager Louis Walsh. That's right, he'll be judging once again on the reality singing contest! Of course you'd never have bet against him not coming back, disgruntlement at his performance last year by the public never strong enough to sway Simon Cowell to ditch his close pal. The Sun reports that Walsh took to Twitter to break the news, and he added "It's my ninth year on the show and as the only remaining original judge I'm delighted to take my seat once more on the judging panel."
With Gary Barlow already signed up to appear, he joined in the Twitter chat about the 'X Factor' and welcomed back Walsh aboard, writing "I hear there's a lovely lad from Ireland joining me on XFactor. Congrats Louis! One of these years you'll be head judge :)."
Speaking about the Irishman coming back, Cowell commented "The show wouldn't be the same without Louis, I am really happy he is coming back. I hope he has an opportunity this year to show what an astute manager he is." We already know that Kelly Rowland won't be coming back for another stint on the show, so all that remains is to see whether Tulisa will be back; she is currently celebrating however, having been named Fhm's Sexiest Woman Of The Year.
