We like to imagine that, much like the cast of Love Island, Celebrity Big Brother, and the Harry Potter films, The X factor Judges are the best of friends IRL and all engage in semi-regular bants on their WhatsApp Group.

But Louis Walsh has revealed something shocking - Sharon Osbourne hated him when they first met.

And this is because he slagged off her daughter, Kelly Osbourne. Ooph.

Louis appeared on This Morning today to chat all things X factor with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, and when Ruth asked if he and Sharon got on when they first met, he replied: “She didn’t like me at all cos I slagged off Kelly. Her vocal.”

Very harsh, tbh Louis.

Ruth then asked how they made up, to which Louis said: “Time. We know where to go or not to go, we go out for dinner a lot. She’s great fun.”

The hosts then asked how Simon was doing after he fell down the stairs in his home and was forced to miss the first live shows, to which Louis said: “wearing high heels late at night is not a good thing climbing stairs”.

Oh, Louis.

This week, the remaining X factor finalists will battle it singing love songs for Crazy In Love week.

The X factor continues on ITV at 8PM this Saturday.
