One Direction fans are getting excited at the idea of a mini-reunion or reunion on this year’s The X Factor.

Louis Tomlinson recently joined the show as one of the new judges alongside Robbie Williams, Ayda Field and Simon Cowell (Plus Sharon Osbourne on the live shows).

Directioners have been hoping that his fellow band mates, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Niall Horan, will show their support behind Louis and get involved in the show.

One star already confirmed to at least be going down to one of the live shows is Niall. During a fan Q & A session on Instagram the singer was asked if he was going to join or visit Louis on X Factor, he responded with: “Of course. Can’t wait to go down and see him in action.”

Although his response implies he’ll just head down and be part of the audience, people are hoping he’ll join them at Judge’s Houses or even perform a duet.

It would certainly boost the ratings…

Meanwhile it’s been reported that the X Factor categories have been leaked.

The X Factor returns to ITV for its 15th series later this year.
