Katy Perry to be new X Factor judge?
Bookies William Hill have seen money for Katy Perry to be named as a Judge on the X Factor 2012 and she is now 8/1 from 12/1 to get the gig. "It would be torture for Russell Brand as Katy would be everywhere later in the year, would she do that to him?" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
Despite this cash for Katy, the odds suggest that next year's panel will be Walsh, Cowell, Contostavlos and Barlow.
William Hill X Factor Judges 2012: 1/5 Louis Walsh, 1/3 Simon Cowell, 1/2 Tulisa Contostavlos, 8/11 Gary Barlow, 2/1 Kelly Rowland, 5/2 Cheryl Cole, 7/1 Nicole Scherzinger, 8/1 Alexandra Burke, 8/1 Katy Perry, 12/1 Dannii Minogue, 20/1 Noel Gallagher.
