X Factor judge Louis Walsh and former finalist Christopher Maloney have got themselves into a bizarre war of words
It started when Christopher took aim at Louis' return to The X Factor this year in a new interview ahead of the show's opener on Saturday night.
"I'm so thrilled that one of my best friends Rylan is going to be on the Xtra Factor," said Christopher. "I'm looking forward to it but I'm a bit miffed that Louis has come back.
"He's a non-entity on the show but they've brought him back."
Rylan decided to try and stir up a bit of trouble by repeating Christopher's comments to Louis on the Xtra Factor tonight (Sunday).
"I dont' know who he is? Who is he?!" replied Louis initially.
After Rylan reminded Louis of just who Christopher was, the Irishman quipped: "Oh, the karaoke singer with all the make up!"
