Doncaster popstar Louis Tomlinson is allegedly in line to bag the last remaining seat on the X Factor judging panel.

Louis Tomlinson of One Direction fame and his former bandmate Zayn Malik are allegedly both in the running for the job on the show that made them famous.

According to bookmakers William Hill three of the judges are a done deal with Cheryl, Simon and Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw all 1/50 to take up sets on the panel.

Louis is the 4/6 favourite to take the final spot and Zayn’s odds have been slashed from 8/1 to 3/1.
