Simon Cowell already dropped a huge hint about Louis Tomlinson potentially getting himself a job on The X Factor during One Direction’s hiatus when Yahoo Celebrity UK (HIYA) caught up with him at the show’s launch.
Now,, more exciting rumours have started about where the sassy one could slot into this year’s series and we’re SO on-board with it all.
According to reports, Uncle Simon, 55, is looking to get Louis T, 23, to join him during the LIVE judges’ houses stage of the competition in a bid to improve The X Factor’s ratings.
A source told The Sun: “Simon is pulling out the big guns as he is still determined to make this series a huge success.
“One Direction have always been big ratings winners and Louis is the most outspoken of the band. He won’t be afraid to tell people if they’re terrible, which Simon loves.”
Please don’t tease us like this, mysterious source. Could this be the ‘one show’ Simon was talking about before?
Louis, who helped Simon out during the live shows last year and would be AMAZING(ly honest and probably sassy) at judges’ houses, previously admitted: “I’d love to if I got the call. But it’d be weird to go to anyone’s but Simon’s as he’s my boss.”
Sinitta, of course, has long been SiCo’s right-hand woman during the judges’ houses stage of the competition, and recently shared her thoughts on the idea of Louis becoming an actual X Factor judge.
She said: “That would be amazing. He spent a lot of time with us last year, mentoring the talent and watching rehearsals.
“I could definitely see him going into music management and production so it’s a good place to start.”
No word on whether Louis would be game for making his grand entrance behind some stragetically placed palm leaves.
While we may not know for certain whether Lou will turn up to help Simon out, we DO know that the music mogul is hoping to get 1D on the show as their last performance before their hiatus.
He previously admitted: “I would like their last performance before their break to be the X Factor final, 100 per cent. I think they will come on the final of The X Factor this year.”
