Simon Cowell on Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Louis Walsh feud: “I wish they’d fight more”

At least he's honest, eh?

Forget Pacquiao v Mayweather, Hopkins v Dyer or even Price v Marsh.

The latest and greatest feud that everyone is talking about is The X Factor's Louis Walsh and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, boss man Simon Cowell poked fun at the pair: “There was always going to be a clash, they’re like Tom and Jerry these two. I wish they’d fight more on the show actually. Why do it on Twitter?”

He added: “What we should do, is just invite Louis down every week just to argue with Cheryl!”


The row sparked after we spoke to the infamously catty Mr Walsh in this week's heat, the Irishman told us: “Cheryl wasn’t great last year. She’s sometimes lazy and lacks energy”.

He then added that "She’s irrelevant these days.”


Well, it wasn't long before the Geordie took to Twitter to throw some shade at Louis, she posted:

"I am beginning to wonder if Louis has some kind of an obsession with me.. I mean this is every year whether I am or am not a part of the show...

". and btw.. This is the same man asking me what he should say to contestants on our way to the stage bc 'he doesn't know'

"I know people say the same about me, but apart from anything, I am fun and I have a rapport with Simon [Cowell]."

You always know when someone is really "fun", when they say how "fun" they are.

We'll keep you posted on the row as it develops - one thing's for sure, it's got us super-excited for *The X Factor. *

Shame it's over THREE MONTHS away :(
