Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow at war over who's 'head judge' on The X Factor 2011!

Louis Walsh

Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow are reportedly at war over which one of them is the head judge for the new series, Xtra Factor host Olly Murs has claimed. The former X Factor finalist, who now co-hosts the ITV2 spin-off (Yeah... we’ve no idea how either), said Gary wasn't happy after Louis pinched his 'head judge' mug!

Olly confessed he saw Louis as the top judge, having been on the series since the begging - but admitted Gary Barlow wanted to take over!

"Louis is head judge as he’s been there longest, but Gary isn’t happy... he wants to be head judge," Olly revealed.

He continued: "We had a ‘head judge’ mug that we gave Gary and Louis wasn’t impressed so nicked it off him. Now Gary isn’t happy and wants it back."

Having been to the X Factor 2011 auditions there's only been one head judge this series and, unfortunately for Louis, it can only be Take That star Gary Barlow!

Meanwhile Olly admitted he was falling for his Xtra Factor co-presenter Caroline Flack! "Caroline is perfect girlfriend material. She’s hot, gorgeous and we’ve got good chemistry,” he told the newspaper.

The Xtra Factor returns to ITV2 next month.
