JUDGE DREAD FOR X FACTOR; RESULT!

Byline: with sports betting's top tipster DEREK McGOVERN E-MAIL: betsguru@aol.com, ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY JOHN SHAW

BOOKIES reckon X Factor will introduce another judge to get rid of the much-ridiculed deadlock - or at least get rid of the even-more-ridiculed Louis Walsh.

Hills have called it "a complete farce; the programme will be much improved without it," but you have to say that's no way to talk about Sharon Osborne's surgery.

Newly-wedded Cheryl Cole has joined woolly-headed Walsh, Simon Cowell, and former Spice Girl Mel B on the panel this year, but sticking with four judges means more occurrences of a split vote, or deadlock as it is called.

It also means more appearances of Walsh, or dead loss as he is called.

Viewers say deadlock is a cop-out.

Walsh agrees and says he would prefer a cop in.

Cowell is still looking for a solution to deadlock and is thought to be considering extra-time and penalties.

Hills offer 5-4 for a fifth judge to be appointed and quote Mary J Blige, impressive as a mentor last year, as a 5-1 chance to get the gig with Rita Ora (above) at 2-1.
