XFactor 2012 judges: Louis Walsh hits out at "big divas" Gary Barlow and Tulisa!

Louis Walsh (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Louis Walsh has hit out at his fellow judges Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos, branding them big divas!

The Irish music mogul also reckons that they've yet to really make up after Gary's comment about Tulisa's 'fag ash breath' on the show last week.

Speaking to Closer magazine, Louis laughed: "They’ve made up? I didn’t know that.

"I don’t think Gary and Tulisa are good friends. They get along on camera, but they’re actually two big divas!"

And Louis quipped: "Gary slipped up a bit there [with the 'fag ash breath' comment]. If he wants to be a Sir, he can’t go around telling people they’ve got bad breath."

But the fourth judge, Nicole Scherzinger, has been impressing Louis with her beauty and her feedback to the contestants.

He gushed: "Nicole’s beautiful and gorgeous, even without make-up. She’s a very professional judge and I love all her Americanisms."

And Louis told the magazine this week: "[Tulisa and Nicole] are getting on better than Tulisa and Kelly did, but there will always be competition between girls because they want the best clothes and the highest heels."


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a guilty pleasures theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from Alicia Keys and Olly Murs, as well as one more act being given the boot.
