Louis Walsh reportedly wants former X Factor colleague Sharon Osbourne to join him at Judges' Houses.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "In Louis's head he's already there, but he needs Simon's 'OK'"

It is believed that the pair may film the Judges' Houses stage at Walsh's Miami home or in New York, with Osbourne's properties in Los Angeles and Atlanta also said to be under consideration.

Osbourne previously joined Walsh for the Judges' Houses round during the 2010 series of the show.
