X Factor 2013: Louis Walsh misses Tulisa on the show!

X Factor 2012 final Tulisa

X Factor 2013 judge Louis Walsh has admitted he misses Tulisa on the show.

Speaking to us on the red carpet during auditions for the series this week, Louis admitted he was still best pals with the N-Dubz singer, despite her axe from the show.

However with Sharon Osbourne being brought back on the panel to replace Tulisa, Louis isn't too upset about all the chnages.

Louis told us: "She's [Tulisa] still my best buddy, I love her, she's great fun, what you see is what you get , there's nothing phoney with her."

The Irish music manager continued: "I love Sharon I think if Sharon had another daughter it would be Tulisa."

Louis added: "Sharon and I had a bit of fun [during the auditions], there was a lot of cursing, but we kept it real we're very honest."

Meanwhile, discussing his tenth year on the show, Louis joked: "Ten years and I'm looking younger, younger than I looked tens year ago!"

And taking a swipe at The Voice, Louis said on the red carpet: "They've never had a star!"

The X Factor 2013 auditions take place all this week at Wembley Arena.

The show returns to ITV next month.
