Louis Walsh could be set to finally get the AXE from The X Factor.

And Robbie Williams is being tipped to replace him, with Cheryl and Mel B's spots on the panel to be confirmed.

The X Factor 2015 is set to see one of the show's biggest ever shake ups with host Dermot O'Leary having already quit.

As well as Dermot's exit, it seems that Louis' time on the panel may at last be over too after eleven years.

“Simon is planning major changes for this year’s X Factor and one of them is getting rid of Louis," a source said today. “It is not 100% finalised yet but Simon knows he needs to make the show current and credible and Louis no longer ticks that box.

“It is hard for him personally as they are great friends. But the decision is all but done.”

It wouldn't be the first time Louis got fired, he was previously axed back during the show's first big shake up in 2007 when Dermot took over hosting duties.

It saw Louis replaced with now X Factor creative director Brian Friedman, who joined the panel alongside Dannii Minogue.

But Louis was re-instated half-way through the auditions because Brain 'wasn't working' in the role.

This time around however it sounds like if Louis does leave it will be for good.

“Everyone in power has agreed it is time Louis went," the source told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper this weekend. “Simon will be coming back but Cheryl and Mel will have to fight for their seats.”
