Louis Tomlinson wants to be a judge on The X Factor

2015-08-04 15:05

Los Angeles - Louis Tomlinson would "love to judge" on The X Factor.

The One Direction star - who found fame on the ITV talent show - has responded to claims he could be set to join the judging panel in the future to admit he would definitely consider it.

He said: "I'd love to judge but as it stands we're working on this next record and we've got to sort that out, so until I've done that I'll wait and see."

Louis and his bandmates Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horan, and former bandmate Zayn Malik, were put together by show boss Simon Cowell after they auditioned as solo acts and the 23-year-old heartthrob has confessed he's ''fascinated'' by the success the show can bring.

Speaking to Darryl Morris on Manchester radio station Key 103, Louis explained: "It's always been a side of the work that's really interested me and The X Factor in particular, you can't deny the opportunity that it gave to us boys and for that reason I'll always be fascinated with the process and the chances it can give to people."

The Drag Me Down singer also revealed the band are still getting used to being a foursome following Zayn's decision to quit earlier this year.

He added: "Don't get me wrong it was a different dynamic at first and I think that's just another challenge and another adjustment that we've had to make. I think we've done that and I think we've proved that with this single. We always made a habit of sharing out the vocals anyway so we just said to ourselves we've got to make this work and I think we did."
