Radio 1’s Grimmy Tipped For X Factor Job
Louis Walsh has confirmed he will not be on the X Factor judging panel this year, leaving two seats free.
Louis Tomlinson has be backed into 6/4 from 2/1 following the news, as punters seem to believe he could be the perfect replacement.
Robbie Williams has also shortened for the role and can now be backed at 7/2 from 5/1. Rita Ora remains a strong contender for the job, despite reports she is looking to judge on the US X Factor, at 11/10.
Nick Grimshaw is a newcomer to the betting, but has gone straight in as one to watch at 3/1 after Louis Walsh hinted he could take on the job.
Another One Directioner’s name in the mix is Niall Horan, who was recently gambled on to leave the group and is 7/1 to take a seat on the 2015 judging panel.
Voice of Ireland coach, Bressie, is a longshot for the job at 150/1, but has suggested Jedward could be perfect for the role and at 16/1 the energetic duo could be set for a return on the X Factor.
‘Grimmy’ would definitely spice up the X Factor with his wacky ways and the Radio 1 DJ has received strong support from punters since going into the betting at 3/1 just a couple of days ago.
Louis Tomlinson has been backed off the boards since Louis Walsh confirmed that he would not be returning as a judge, however following the recent bets on Niall Horan to leave One Direction Niall is seeing some shrewd bets at 7/1.
