Music is always my priority, says Louis Tomlinson as X Factor rumours abound
The former One Direction star is reportedly one of the new three additions to the ITV show’s judging panel.
Louis Tomlinson has reassured his fans, saying music is always his priority following speculation that he is to join The X Factor judging panel.
The 26-year-old is among the names to have reportedly signed up to join the ITV singing series, according to the Sun.
Pop star Robbie Williams and his wife, Ayda Field, are also rumoured to be joining the former One Direction singer, the paper said.
Gonna do a little video message tonight to talk about everything. Music is always my priority obviously! Love you all— Louis Tomlinson (@Louis_Tomlinson) July 17, 2018
Writing on Twitter, Tomlinson said: “Gonna do a little video message tonight to talk about everything. Music is always my priority obviously! Love you all.”
His message comes ahead of an official announcement about the judging panel to be made by ITV on Tuesday afternoon.
Tomlinson rose to fame as part of One Direction, who finished third during the 2010 run of X Factor.
Louis Walsh recently announced that he would not be returning to the series.
The band manager, the longest-serving judge on the talent show, has appeared in every series except one since the show began in 2004.
He said in a statement: “I’ve had a fantastic 13 years on The X Factor but the show needs a change and I’m ready to leave.
“I’m looking forward to another series of Ireland’s Got Talent, going back to my day job as a manager, writing my memoirs and seeing the world.”
ITV also announced that Sharon Osbourne, who has appeared in seven series of The X Factor, will take on an “exciting new role” which will see her sit on the judging panel for the live episodes.
The broadcaster has also previously confirmed that head judge Simon Cowell will return for the latest series.
