X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has confessed she found Louis Walsh irritating at the weekend.
Tulisa, who is the only judge to have lost all of her acts, insisted however she still loved the Irish star!
She said: "Louis irritated me a little bit with his constant banter on Saturday night. You’ve got to take him with a pinch of salt. He’s a regular little wind-up merchant, that’s why we love him!"
Louis himself admitted this week that he loved winding up the N-Dubz star.
He said: "I think she’s in love. I can tell - she looks really happy and is letting me get away with murder on the show! I enjoy winding her up by calling her a WAG. It’s such a shame to have lost Ella but Tulisa has lots going on in her career with her album and so forth. She’s one busy bee!"
Meanwhile, Tulisa said didn't consider herself in a battle with Nicole Scherzinger on the series.
She explained: "I couldn’t care less about these ‘fashion wars.’ Nicole always looks stunning, there’s no rivalry whatsoever between us. I like her."
In an interview with the official ITV1 X Factor website, Tulisa also gave her backing to Jahmene Douglas or James Arthur.
She told the website: "I want either James or Jahmene to win. They both have lots of soul and fire.
"James got his sexy on last weekend. I’m sure the girls at home would’ve been very pleased with his performance. He’s such a grounded, nice guy. I’d happily set him up with one of my mates. I can see why he’s popular with women."
The X Factor 2012 continues this weekend on ITV1 and ITV1HD with the final four acts singing songs that they hope will get them into the final.
On Sunday's results show, one more act get the axe and there will be performances from Pink and Tulisa.
