Some fans really aren't happy with the idea of Louis joining the X Factor panel.
It looks like the X Factor might be getting a pretty big overhaul this year, with Louis Tomlinson being the new favourite to join the panel – but fans aren’t happy about the thought of him becoming a judge.
After Louis teased his debut solo tour recently, the 1D lad has now become the favourite to join the judging panel this year on the show that made him famous, but while the thought of Louis live on our TV every weekend is pretty darn exciting, fans are split on the whole thing!
Speaking to the Mirror, a show source revealed, "Louis is very much a part of the X Factor family. He’s a close friend of the show and would make a brilliant judge. Simon mentored One Direction and signed them to Syco Records, now he’s looking after Louis’ solo career – which is going really well."
The source went on to add, "Simon hopes the deal will be done in the next few days". If he was to join, it seems Louis would be on the judging panel alongside Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda Field and of course head honcho Simon Cowell.
Folowing the stories emerging, fans took to Twitter to give their opinion, revealing that their pretty split when it comes to him joining the show...

If Louis is a judge on x factor that would be great as then we'd get to see him every weekend but his solo career would be put on hold— sharna smart ◟̽◞̽ (@sharna1212) July 10, 2018
Demi messed up her career when she did X- factor and i hope louis wont be the judge again because it wont help him at all— Ana (@medicinesjustin) July 10, 2018
We can’t lie, we’d be pretty stoked at the thought of more Louis in our lives but we want the music too – that’s not too much to ask, is it?
