Charlotte Church among favourites to take Louis Walsh’s place on X Factor

After 10 years as a judge on the X Factor, judge Louis Walsh has decided to leave the series.

And bookies have been quick off the mark to give 9/1 odds on Cardiff’s favourite Voice of an Angel, Charlotte Church, taking his place.

Walsh, who helped steer Westlife and Boyzone to success, said he wanted to focus on managing bands.

He told TV Times: “I’m happy this is going to be my last year.

“I’ve been judging X Factor for 10 years so I’ve done it all.

“It was never in my plan to be on TV but Simon (Cowell) put me there. I’m very grateful to him but I need my life back!”

So who could join Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger on the panel? Here’s our pick of the Welsh names – and a few other fun suggestions – who we think should be in with a chance.
