As if the whole random romance between Liam Payne and Cheryl NoSurname wasn't enough of a plot twist for you, rumours this morning have gone and made the whole thing even CRAZIER by dropping the X bomb into the mix.

With loads of people accusing the couple of using 'em of taking part in a publicity stunt, speculation is now rife that it could also be leading up to a big announcement that Payno has joined the X Factor judging panel for the new series.

For actual YEARS now, everyone's been pretty convinced that Louis would be perfect for the X Factor judging job, but with the new Chiam romance that's blossoming these days, there might be another 1D-er in the line up.

Bookies are now convinced that Cheryl's gonna be sitting alongside her new bae at the judges table, as a Ladbrokes spokesperson told the Daily Star: "If Simon wants watings to rocket then he needs to sign up Cheryl and Liam as judges."

As much as we've been backing Louis for the job since Day Zero, we would SO watch that.

Even X Factor veteran Louis Walsh is on board with the idea of Liam becoming an X Factor mentor, describing him as the 'Gary Barlow of One Direction', which is always a lovely compliment. 

"I think Liam is really talented," Walshy spilled. 'He's a great songwriter. I think Liam will be good for Cheryl."

So there you go. Just make sure that it doesn't get in the way of the beautiful LiLo bromance, or we might have to kill someone. Or how about we scrap all the X Factor judges and just replace 'em all with all four members of One Direction?

Yep, we like that idea. Thoughts on all of this palarva to us @Sugarscape please, guys and gals.
