X Factor: Simon Cowell 'won't rule out' Louis Walsh TV comeback
X Factor boss Simon Cowell has said he would not rule out the return of Louis Walsh to the show.
The music mogul also revealed that both Fleur East and previous winner Ben Haenow will be returning.
When asked if a recent tweet where he hinted at "some surprises to come" was referring to Walsh's return, he said: "I wouldn't rule out anything. When I say these things, sometimes I'm thinking, I've got to ask about 25 people here and half of them will go no, but I just put it out there anyway, because we like to try new things.
"You've got to be fearless when you do these types of things, and you've got to have a sense of humour. If I thought the viewers would like to see him on the live shows, why not?"
