Walsh has featured on all but one of the judging panels for each edition of 'The X Factor' going back to its 2004 inception.
The 65 year old pop mogul has been the show’s longest serving judge, appearing in all but one of the editions of ‘The X Factor’ since it began way back in 2004.
“I’ve had a fantastic 13 years on ‘The X Factor’ but the show needs a change and I'm ready to leave,” said Walsh in a statement. He added that he would remain a judge on another talent show, ‘Ireland's Got Talent’, as well as focussing more on “my day job as a manager, writing my memoirs and seeing the world.”

Cardle suffered a dramatic fall from grace in the years following his 'X Factor' win in 2010.
Matt Cardle, a former winner of ‘The X Factor’, has opened up about his struggles with alcohol and drug addiction in the aftermath of a dramatic downturn in his career in the years following his victory.
The singer-songwriter, now 34, got a brilliant start to his fledgling music career in 2010 when he won ‘The X Factor’, even beating out One Direction to win the ITV talent contest. However, just three years later, Cardle found himself without a record label and having not had a sniff of a hit in ages, and he revealed in a new interview this week that seeing his friends and colleagues become global megastars while he struggled to get noticed hit him hard.
“I got lucky on a number of occasions not to have been found f***ing cold,” he told The Sun on Tuesday (March 13th). “I was being rejected left, right and centre for a record, for all of this kind of stuff. And none of it was bitterness, but it’s just frustration about my fall from grace.”

Cheryl is widely reported to be involved with 'The Greatest Dancer', a new talent show currently in development by the BBC.
After more than two years out, Cheryl has confirmed that her television comeback will be on the BBC’s new talent show ‘The Greatest Dancer’, in what appears to be a sensational snub to ITV.
The former Girls Aloud star was spotted filming the new series at the Hammersmith Apollo on Tuesday this week, and took photos with fans alongside Alesha Dixon, Jordan Banjo and Matthew Morrison.
Cheryl is therefore expected to be named one of the show’s ‘dance captains’ in the coming weeks.
Simon Cowell is not happy.
Just over a year after he quit ‘The X Factor’, Olly Murs has committed the egregious pop star sin of betrayal of Simon Cowell, announcing that he’s set to become a judge on the next series of ‘The Voice UK’.
Murs will be taking up the spinning chair previously occupied by the departing Gavin Rossdale, and will appear when the show returns on ITV for its seventh series in early 2018. He’ll be alongside Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and the ever-present will.i.am on the judging panel, while Emma Willis will return as the host.
“I’m absolutely buzzing about being a coach on ‘The Voice UK’ and can’t wait to sit in the big red chair alongside will, Jennifer and Tom,” 33 year old Murs said in a statement on Wednesday (October 11th) announcing his participation on the singing contest.

64 year old Sharon might be retiring from showbusiness altogether by the end of the year, according to a new interview with The Sun.
The 64 year old former reality star and music mogul told The Sun on Thursday (August 24th) that she had given herself a five-year time frame in which to carry on working before forcing herself to retire, in order to retain her dignity.
Instead, she’s planning on enjoying her retirement with her husband, Black Sabbath star Ozzy Osbourne, with whom she recently celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary.

Sharon was replaced by Alesha Dixon for the Edinburgh auditions ahead of season 14 of 'The X Factor'.
Dixon has only recently finished her regular stint on the judging panel of fellow ITV show ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, but was drafted in for ‘The X Factor’ auditions this week after Sharon flew back to Los Angeles in order to seek treatment for the “recurring” problem with her back.

Smoking is an expensive habit, especially for music mogul Simon Cowell.
Simon Cowell certainly seems to be paying the price for his smoking habit. The ‘X-Factor’ boss reportedly has to cough up £100 every time he lights up during filming of the ITV series, thanks to a rule stating anyone smoking in the building has to pay a £100 fine.
Simon Cowell has to pay a hefty fine for smoking at the ‘X-Factor’ studios.
The Sunday Mirror reports that Cowell enjoys his expensive smokes during advert breaks on the live show. 'Over the course of a series we're talking about literally thousands of pounds,’ a source told the newspaper.
The 'Toast of London' and 'IT Crowd' star was talking to Digital Spy in a new interview.
Comic actor Matt Berry possesses one of the most distinctive voices in the British media at the moment, but he’s revealed that he had absolutely no interest in taking over one of the most high-profile voiceover roles in the industry – that of ‘The X Factor’ announcer.
41 year old Berry, who is about to return to TV screens with the series of his Channel 4 comedy ‘Toast of London’ in which he plays a voiceover actor, told Digital Spy in an interview that he wouldn’t have been interested in taking the place of Peter Dickson on the show when his brief break was announced earlier this year.

The 'X Factor' co-host may be forced to make Olly Murs present alone after coming down with the flu this week.
A source told The Sun [via the Mirror] on Wednesday (October 28th) that Flack was bed-ridden and may not recover in time to host this weekend’s first live shows, leaving co-presenter Olly Murs to do so by himself.
“She hasn’t been feeling well this week at all, and the timing couldn’t be worse, with the first live performances this weekend,” the source revealed. “She has been resting at home and doing everything she possibly can to recover in time to make it on stage with Olly on Saturday night.”
