Sinitta's already as good as confirmed it's gonna happen; and now Fleur East's the latest celeb-type to back Louis Tomlinson off of One Direction as the next X Factor judge. Providing Cheryl Fernandez-Versini doesn't plonk Liam Payne in that seat next to her, anyways.

Tommo was obviously involved in the judges' houses round of last year's series - helping big boss Simon Cowell choose his over 25s - and now Fleur reckons he'd be a prime candidate to replace Nick Grimshaw this time around.

Having a chinwag with Bang Showbiz, Fleur said: "Who better than someone who has actually been through the same experience, than him? I know so many contestants can't wait to hear his advice. I would have loved to have heard his advice before I went on the show."

Fleur reckons Luigi's had his eye on the role for a while, too. She added: " He was actually in a lot of my tech rehearsals with Simon when I was on the show, so I think even from then he was seeing how it all worked.

"He was always saying, 'You're amazing, you're doing a great job, just enjoy it, have fun, don't stress too much,' and that was really good advice."

Oh he's just a bloody natural, isn't he?
