Louis Walsh axes his 'tell all book' to make X Factor return

Louis-Walsh v

Louis Walsh has reportedly put plans for a 'tell all book' on hold, as he prepares to return to The X Factor.

The Irish music mogul hasn't been officially announced for this year's show yet but pretty much confirmed he would be back once the paperwork was completed.

He said this week: "I did meet Simon, I did meet Sharon Osbourne.

"It looks like I'm back, but I haven't signed."

Louis' comeback is set to be good news for many stars of The X Factor past and present with the music manager having been planning an explosive autobiography following his axe last year.

He had been set to spill everything about his decade on the show, as well as his time on Popstars: The Rivals and managing Girls Aloud.

Now though it's on hold, with a source saying: “Louis is keen to get back on The X Factor and knows his autobiography would only upset the apple cart."

They explained to The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “Initially he had planned big takedowns of people he has had spats with over the years including fellow judges he didn’t always see eye-to-eye with such as Cheryl and Gary.

“But instead he’s hopeful to come back for this year and, who knows, add maybe a few more to his list and amass more gossip for him to eventually put in the book.”

We'd definitely love to have a read if it's ever released...
