I never want to work with Cheryl again, says Louis Walsh
Louis Walsh has said that he would return to X Factor - but doesn't want to work with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini again.
The Mayo music mogul has stayed in touch with Simon Cowell, despite not being asked back on the 11th series of the show.
He said that while it was "too early to say" about his chances of returning to the talent contest, he wouldn't rule anything out.
"Let's get this series over with first. It's a case of 'Never say never'. But it depends who was there," he said.
"I would only go back if it was going to be fun, I was there for 11 years and had an amazing time with Sharon Osbourne. Sharon's fun and I love Nicole Scherzinger. If they were back, who knows?"
He is less effusive when asked if would want to work with former Girls Aloud star Cheryl again, given their chequered history and their many heated exchanges on the X Factor.
"Not really. She's okay, but she doesn't give me the fun that Sharon gives me or Nicole gives me. For me, they're the two best judges ever and I like Mel B. She was great fun. And Gary Barlow too," hesaid.
He is now in the final stages of signing up to a new show with ITV that has "nothing to do with music".
