Louis Walsh has hinted at an X Factor return in 2016, admitting Simon Cowell has "something coming up" for him next year.

Although this year's X Factor has only recently come to an end, it's never too early to speculate about what's next for the show, right?!

In a recent interview, Louis revealed that earlier this year, talent show boss Simon advised him to turn down appearing on I'm A Celebrity alongside Vicky Pattison and TOWIE's Ferne McCann, as he already had a mystery job lined up for him...ooh.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Louis admitted he was tempted to sample life in the Australian bush on I'm A Celeb, until Simon intervened. He explained: "I met them and I nearly was going to do it. But Simon said he might have something else coming up for me.

"If it's not X Factor I'll do the Jungle, so either way I'm happy. But Simon saying that is a good sign – that is a good carrot."

However if Louis does return to his seat alongside Simon on the judging panel, there could be drama ahead. The music manager revealed he would not enjoy working alongside Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

After calling previous judges Sharon Osbourne, Mel B and Nicole Scherzinger "great fun", Louis admitted, "with Cheryl, I wouldn't be her biggest fan." Ouch!

Would you like to see Louis back on the show? After Simon told us the audition rooms will be making a comeback, it looks like the return of old traditions are becoming a theme.
