SINITTA has predicted Louis Walsh will return to The X Factor despite quitting after 13 years as a judge.
Yesterday it was revealed the Irishman had decided to leave the show before the 2018 series gets underway.
But speaking to The Mirror Online at the DIVA Magazine Awards, the singer doubted it was for good.
She said: "Do you think he really has? How many times has Louis quit X Factor? He says it every year. Do you think it really is it for him?
"He's said it before and he's always gone back.
"But saying that, maybe it is time he gave up and made way for someone new. I would miss him and I think viewers will."
The So Macho singer believes Louis' departure won't have caused tension between him and show boss Simon Cowell.
She added: "Louis is a genuinely nice guy. Him and Simon are such good friends and if he really has left I'm sure they will still hang out."
Her comments come after The Sun exclusively revealed how Robbie Williams is being lined up to replace Louis, 65.
The superstar has been in secret negotiations for weeks and show chiefs are confident he will put pen to paper.
His crusade intensified after the singer impressed him as a guest judge with Sharon Osbourne in 2016.
A show insider said: “Robbie has always been Simon’s dream signing.
“Now it appears he’s finally going to get his man.
“Over the past 12 months they’ve become close, as have their wives who are also pals.
“There’s a deal on the table and Robbie is keen to do it. The hope is that the deal is days away from being signed and announced.”
