Williams favourite to replace Cowell on X Factor

| 28.01.2011

Simon Cowell is 3/1 not to return to the X Factor this year, according to Ladbrokes. Rumour is rife that he is set to focus his energy on the US version of the show which could mean he will not have time to do the show in the UK this year.

The departure of the poisoned tongued lothario is sure to be a big headache for ITV, however, Ladbrokes also make Robbie Williams the 3/1 favourite to replace him.

Spokesman David Williams said, “We are used to the X Factor markets being focused on the contestants, however, if Cowell leaves the show we are expecting to see a massive market on his replacement.”

Who will replace Simon as a full-time X Factor judge?
3/1 Robbie Williams
4/1 Gary Barlow
6/1 Will Young
7/1 Jedward
8/1 Ronan Keating
10/1 Jason Donavan
12/1 Shane Lynch
14/1 Alan Carr
16/1 Sir Paul McCartney
16/1 “Nasty” Nigel Lythgoe
20/1 Liam Gallagher
20/1 Michael Buble
25/1 Piers Morgan
33/1 Jonathan Ross
50/1 Jonny Rotten
100/1 Aled Jones
