Simon Cowell has reportedly been trying to repair Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh's relationship.
According to the Daily Star today, X Factor boss Simon has called on health healer Hazel Taylor to rid the show's judges of all their negative energy, after hiring Hazel to cleanse his house
“I have to say the house healer did a great job. I did it because if you believe something can make you feel happier then try it," Simon claimed recently. “Two people came round and said the house felt different. So you never know.”
An insider told the newspaper; “We need all the help we can get.
“You can cut the atmosphere with a knife so the healer was brought in to try and see off the bad energy and bring the fun back.
“Hopefully, all of the last week’s negativity will be over and we can have a laugh again.”
The X Factor 2012 continues tonight at 8:20PM on ITV1, and it's shaping up to be a dramatic episode.
This weekend will see the remaining contestants singing tracks with a love and heartbreak theme before the public vote once again, and one more act is eliminated on Sunday night's second results show.
Sunday's show will also feature performances from US country star Taylor Swift and former X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson.
