X Factor judge Louis Walsh has finally said sorry to telly legend Sir Bruce Forsyth for saying that the 83-year-old should be dead! The rival reality TV stars found themselves rowing in the press last year following Louis' comments, but when they reunited on Alan Carr's Chatty Man this week there was nothing but pleasantries.

In the interview, which airs on Channel 4 tonight, Louis apologises to Strictly Come Dancing host Sir Bruce Forsyth.

The duo were arguing last December after Louis Walsh said that the presenter "should be dead".

Bruce hit back in the press, saying: “Louis Walsh said I should be dead. He said in print that I should be dead by now. Can you believe that from a jumped-up karaoke judge?”

Louis however didn't back down, responding: “Bruce should just retire. His comments are the sign of old age. He’s too old to be on TV. He should just bow out gracefully now at the top of his game and go"

When the pair met yesterday at the recording of Alan Carr's show however, Louis told Bruce: “It wasn’t personal. You are a treasure. I’m a big fan of yours. I’m really sorry.”

The show airs at 10PM tonight on Channel 4.
