The husband and wife pair took to social media to tell fans they wouldn't be back for 2019's run.

Blaming busy schedules, the pair said: "We're gutted to tell you we won't be able to return to The X Factor this year. We will be working on projects with Simon going forward - and as huge fans of the show, we will still be tuning into The X Factor, voting and winding Simon up!"

The news follows One Direction star Louis Tomlinson admitting he may not be back on the show either.

With potentially a trio of new judges needed, Little Mix's Perrie Edwards is now the odds-on favourite with bookmakers Ladbrokes to join the show.

The former X Factor winner, who rose to fame with Little Mix on the show in 2011, has seen her odds tumble from 6/1 to just 10/11 over the last 24 hours.

Elsewhere, Louis Walsh has seen his odds of a dramatic return to the show cut to just 2/1 (from 3/1).

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Perrie's odds of becoming a judge are shortening by the hour, but the odds point towards two Louis' being on the panel later this year."
