Walsh "agrees 'X Factor' come-back deal"

By
Louis Walsh has apparently agreed to return to The X Factor - as long as he can leave at the end of the series.

An insider told the Daily Mirror: "Louis's decision to walk out threw everyone into a state of panic and the show's bosses were holding crisis talks to work out ways to persuade him to return."

Walsh, along with fellow judge Sharon Osbourne, is contracted for another series of the show after this one. Creator Simon Cowell agreed to release Walsh from this obligation if he returns to this series, according to the newspaper.

The source added: "It has also been pointed out to Louis that he would be in breach of contract if he just doesn't bother to turn up."

TV critic Sharon Marshall, who has spoken to Walsh about the incident, told This Morning: "He's in Dublin. He feels like he's been bullied by the show's management. He feels like he's been belittled and that every week he is being made fun of."
