X Factor 2014 judges: Cheryl Cole 'odds on' to return alongside Simon Cowell

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole is odds-on to return to the X Factor judging panel next year according to Ladbrokes.

With Simon Cowell looking like a certainty at 1/10 the odds also imply that Cheryl will be making a sensational return to the hotseat during 2014 at 1/2.

And despite initially saying he would be bowing out in his tenth year, Louis Walsh is quoted at just even money to remain on the panel after dropping several hints he might not be ready to quit just yet.

Robbie Williams finds himself next in the betting at 2/1 after his appearance at judges' houses this year, or it's a 3/1 shot Rita Ora takes time away from filming 50 Shades of Grey to be a judge.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "The odds suggest the nation's sweetheart is set to return to our TV screens.

"Punters would love to see Cheryl back on the panel, she was an incredibly popular judge with both the male and female audience which will only see ratings rocket next year."
