The new series of X Factor hasn’t quite started yet, but speculation about who could be joining each judge at Judges’ House is already rife.

If you don’t want any spoilers about which judge is mentoring which category, you might want to look away now.

According to an insider for the Radio Times, Louis Walsh will be calling on a ‘former X Factor winner’ to help him out when he tries to decide which Groups to put through to the live shows.

With that clue, rumours are abound that Louis could call in help from former X Factor champ Shayne Ward, who he coached to win the show’s crown way back in 2005.

Of course, there’s plenty of other winners that he could pick, but we would love to see Shayne come back.

The insider believes the judge will choose a ‘crew’ of helpers rather than just one, as he did in 2013 when Sinitta, Shane Filan and Nicole Appleton all gave him a hand with choosing his finalists.

It’s not yet known where Louis will be taking his Groups.

Cheryl is also rumoured to be returning to help Simon Cowell out with his Judges’ Houses decisions.
