X Factor judge Louis Walsh has announced his decision to quit the show after this year’s series.
Louis has been on The X Factor panel since it’s beginning in 2004, and is the only original judge.
Talking to TV Times, he said: “”I’m happy this is going to be my last year, I’ve been judging X Factor for ten years so I’ve done it all.”
He added: “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!”
The X Factor will return to our screens at the end of this month.
