X Factor 2012: Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh still not talking!

Louis Walsh (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judges Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh are still not talking, it's been reported.

It was revealed earlier today that the X Factor judges held a crisis meeting over the weekend's first live show.

Gary stormed off on Sunday night after Louis Walsh saved Rylan Clark over Carolynne Poole in the first results show of the series.

A source claimed this morning: “He [Gary] wants The X Factor to be all about the music. It was a pretty frank discussion and at the beginning he could barely mention Louis’ name."

The source added: “With no Simon Cowell around, it is clear he is calling the shots and is head judge.”

Other insiders at the dinner - which saw all four judges, host Dermot O'Leary and producers meet up - claimed that Gary and Louis didn't speak.

They claimed: "Everyone was hoping for peace talks between Gary and Louis but they sat at opposite ends of the table and didn't speak all night."

A spokesperson for the X Factor declined to comment.

Over 2,000 viewers have complained to TV watchdog Ofcom over Sunday night’s show, which saw Carolynne Poole become the first person to be eliminated from this year’s series ahead of Rylan Clark.

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night on ITV1, with the results show following on Sunday night with performances from Taylor Swift and Rebecca Ferguson.
