Paddy Power have today started taking bets on who will be on the X Factor's judging panel in 2014 after Louis Walsh confirmed that he would not be returning to the show next year. The rest of this year's judges, Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne, are all massively odds on to return in 2014, while Mr X Factor himself Simon Cowell is the favourite to replace Walsh.

Another former judge, Tulisa, is next in the betting with former Spice Girl Mel B, Charlotte Church and Ashley Roberts also amongst the front runners. A Paddy Power spokesperson said:

"Louis Walsh has been the only constant since the X Factor began and it may be left to Simon Cowell to put his recent troubles behind him and fill the massive shoes left behind by the Irishman."

We'll see...
