Louis Walsh has confessed he's missing Rylan Clark on The X Factor 2012!
Rylan was finally eliminated from the show last week, and Louis has admitted that the atmosphere backstage on the show isn't the same without the Essex performer on set.
He said: "I’m really missing Rylan. Behind-the-scenes, he was so much fun and such a bundle of energy.
"We’ve never had anyone quite like him on the show before. I predict that one day he’ll be a very successful TV presenter. He really does have the ‘X’ Factor."
Louis lost his last remaining act Union J at the weekend, but he reckons they're going to be huge!
He explained: "It’s very sad but I’m so proud of the boys. They really are going to be huge, I think we’re looking at the next One Direction.
"They’re such grounded, great guys. The ONLY positive I can think of is that I won’t have to wear that leotard I’d promised on wearing if they got through to the Final. The guys know they can count on me for support and advice."
With Union J out, Louis is now backing Jahmene Douglas to win!
He told the official ITV1 X Factor website today: "I had to fight back the tears. I was incredibly moved by Jahmene’s performance in memory of his late brother. What a brave boy! Now Union J have left, I’d love Jahmene to win."
