EXCLUSIVE: One Direction star Louis Tomlinson set to battle Louis Walsh for judge’s seat
NICK Grimshaw and Caroline Flack are leaving The X Factor after just a year in a shake-up by axeman boss Simon Cowell.

Radio 1 presenter Grimmy’s exit comes after a difficult debut year as a judge on the hit ITV talent show, where he faced private criticism from Cowell behind the scenes about his lacklustre performances contributing to a ratings slump.

He made the decision to walk at Christmas after weeks of rumours he would be replaced by One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson.

Grimmy, 31, confirmed last night he would not return — but insisted it was his decision to leave.

His spokesman told The Sun: “After careful consideration, Nick’s decided to rule himself out as a judge on this year’s X Factor.

“He loved working on last year’s series alongside Rita, Cheryl and Simon but it was very much a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He remains a massive fan of the show and is looking forward to watching it this year.”

X Factor insiders said Grimshaw’s departure had been inevitable for some time. A show source said: “Nick made the decision to jump before he was pushed and that is completely understandable.”

A show spokesman said: “We wish him all the best.”Image
