Louis Walsh's Next Job Odds: Star Set For Talent Show Return?
© PA

Louis Walsh returned to our TV screens last month during a largely successful spell on Celebrity Big Brother, and it has sparked speculation on UK betting sites about what he might do next.

It was reported that ITV splashed out a hefty sum to attract Louis and his fellow former X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne to the channel's first-ever celebrity edition of the iconic reality TV series.

While Sharon's time on the show was always going to be cut short, due to her being the first-ever CBB "lodger", Louis managed to make it through the whole three weeks in the house, and finished fourth.

He had some ups and downs in the house, and was at times odds-on favourite to win the series, before David Potts secured the title, but Louis' CBB journey was largely positive.

With the music mogul back at the forefront of people's minds, there will no doubt be TV producers across the land who have since been engaged in conversation with one another about what they could approach Louis to do next - but what will he say yes to?

Louis' Talent Show Return?

While Louis has managed the likes of Boyzone, Westlife and Girls Aloud in his music manager career, he is arguably best known for being a judge on The X Factor.

The series had its heyday in the mid-Noughties when he sat on the panel alongside Sharon and X Factor boss Simon Cowell - but could he do it again?

Louis is 4/6 on specials betting sites to become a judge on a talent show, and 3/1 to reunite with Simon on a talent show.

There is no X Factor around at the moment, but it was recently rumoured Simon could be bringing back an X Factor-style series. Could that pave the way for Louis' comeback? Perhaps not.

Last week, Louis was asked on This Morning whether Simon had been in touch since his Celebrity Big Brother appearance, and he bluntly replied: "No."

There could still be other talent shows out there for Louis, but don't expect him to team up with Jedward anytime soon.

In the CBB house, he branded the pop star twins "vile" to work with, and the pair have since blasted back, claiming he is a "an evil manipulator" and a "cold hearted b*****d".

Louis' Tell-All Book?

During their time in the CBB house, Louis and Sharon took swipes at several celebrities they weren't big fans of, and that included Louis taking a pop at Ronan Keating, who he previously managed in Boyzone and the star's solo career.

In the CBB house, Louis described Ronan as a "p****", but Ronan hit back on Ireland’s The Late Late Show.

He said: "I’ve never been one to air my dirty laundry in public, especially when it comes to Louis and myself. He does a very good job of that and I think he’s showing his true colours in there and I’ll leave him be."

While Louis won't be teaming up with Ronan anytime soon either, his celebrity bashing could be perfect for an autobiography.

He is Evens on betting apps to pen a tome, and he has previously hinted one is in the works.

In 2018, a source told the Daily Mirror newspaper Louis was planning a tell-all book to "settle a few scores".

Louis And Sharon's Next Show

One person he's unlikely to be negative about in the book is his good pal Sharon, and the pair are just 2/1 on new betting sites to land their own travel show following their CBB reunion.

Just imagine the amount of celeb bashing they could get through while floating through the canals of Venice on a gondola, or during a trek to Peru's Machu Picchu. It would be comedy gold.

If not, Louis could reunite with some of his other Celebrity Big Brother co-stars.

Imagine Louis being partnered with his fellow CBB housemate on the next series of Strictly Come Dancing (4/1), or he could front a podcast with his CBB frenemy Zeze Millz (5/1).

One of Louis' closest bonds in the house was with Coronation Street actor Colson Smith, and he is 6/1 to make a cameo in a British soap, while it's 8/1 to appears in Netflix hit Heartstopper, which features his CBB housemate Bradley Riches.

One thing Louis complained a lot about in the house was eventual winner David's early morning singing.

However, time may have healed Louis' ear pain, and he is now 10/1 to do a duet with David as his next piece of work.
