X Factor 2012: Olly Murs wants to replace Louis Walsh!

Olly Murs

Xtra Factor host Olly Murs has hinted that he hopes to replace Louis Walsh on the panel in the future!

The former X Factor star reckons he'd be the perfect replacement for when Louis eventually retires from the show.

Irish music mogul Louis is the last remaining judge on the panel, having been sat at the end of the table since the first series back in 2004.

He revealed last week that he hoped to get to ten years on the show before finally saying goodbye to the series, and Olly was quick to suggest who could replace him.

The cheeky singer turned telly presenter said in a radio interview this week: "Who's going to replace Louis? That's a big question! After he has been there for such a long time and done such amazing work."

Olly hinted to Heart radio: "I mean, it's a job a lot of people will want to take. Maybe they will take someone who's been on The X Factor, done really well in their career successfully, and take someone like that to do it."

He joked: "I don't know who that could be, it could be anyone."

Do you think Olly would make a good X Factor judge?

Frankly, we can't imagine the show without Louis!
