Our dreams of seeing Louis Tomlinson's oh-so-pretty little face on our tellyboxes every weekend might have been shattered, but it's now been reported that X Factor bosses are 'very keen' to nab one of the One Direction boys for this year's judging panel. Er, YES PLEASE.

After Cheryl Fernandez-Versini announced she won't be returning as a judge on the next series of the show, someone now reckons one of the big bosses wants a 1D member on the panel *and* seems insistent they don't want Louis Walsh on there.

Chatting to the Mirror, a sneaky source-type said: "One of the top bosses is very keen for one of the 1D lads to be on the judging panel. This same boss is anti-Louis Walsh, which could spell trouble for the Irishman.

"There's a lot of work going on behind the scenes at the moment to try and get them on board."

This all comes as it's rumoured Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini might be joining The X Factor Australia judging panel, with a source telling the Mirror: "X Factor UK have given their blessing for the Aussie team to approach Cheryl. They think having Cheryl and Liam on the panel would be a great coup so are trying their best to entice them.

"It's at the very early stages at the moment but who knows what could happen. But moving to Oz would be a huge step for Cheryl and Liam, especially so early in their relationship."

Hmm.
