Following Louis Walsh’s ‘X Factor’ departure - which has been all but confirmed by show boss Simon Cowell - Nick is reportedly at the top of producers’ wishlists to take over, which sounds like something he’d definitely be up for.

Speaking to The Mirror, the Radio 1 DJ revealed: “I would like to do it. I love the show. But loads of people I've read [are rumoured] will be really good.”

He also refused to confirm or deny that the rumours about him being in talks with producers were true, adding: “[The rumours are] nothing but speculation... pretty much everyone's - who has had anything to do with music - names have been involved.”

"So there's nothing more to that so far."

Still, that “so far” sounds promising, right?

Despite reports to the contrary, earlier this week Louis insisted that he hadn’t been “sacked” from ‘The X Factor’, saying: “I can honestly tell you that [I wasn’t sacked], but I'm not hanging around for them this year because I want to go back to being a manager.

“I'm basically going back to my roots, which is the reason I got into this business - music. I love music.

"But I wasn't sacked, I haven't been hired and I'm not hanging around."
