Louis Walsh fans the flames of Cheryl X Factor row
Louis Walsh has fanned the flames of his spat with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini by claiming she would refuse to be an X Factor judge if Nicole Scherzinger returned.
Walsh (left) was embroiled in a war of words with Fernandez-Versini last week after he branded her "lazy" and "irrelevant", to which she responded by claiming the 62-year-old had an "obsession" with her.
"Cheryl's got a job. Why won't she allow Simon to have Nicole on the panel? There's your f***ing story. That's the truth," said Walsh. "Because Nicole's good. She won't sign if Nicole signs.
"If I was going to hire any female, it would be her. Sharon Osborne would be amazing too."
