X Factor 2013 judges: Is this the X Factor line up?

The X Factor 2013 judging panel is set to include Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Robbie Williams.

Apparently, anyway. Gary is heavily odds-on to return to the next series of X Factor according to Ladbrokes. After making up with the gaffer Simon Cowell, Gary is long odds-on at 1/10 to take his seat on this year's judging panel along side Louis Walsh (1/10) and last year's winning mentor Nicole Scherzinger (1/6). However Tulisa is now being quoted at a huge 20/1 to retain her spot as a judge, with Robbie Williams looking like her replacement at 4/6, or it's an even money chance that Mel B spices up the next series. Other names include former judges Sharon Osbourne and Cheryl Cole, with odds of 5/1 and 8/1 respectively. Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Tulisa's got no chance of returning as far as we're concerned, and with the likes of Robbie and Mel B snapping at her heels it's not hard to see why."
