Louis Walsh has responded to claims made by Sky 1 presenter Cat Deeley that X Factor has had its day.
The Irish man, who appears alongside Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne as a judge on the singing competition, says he believes that Cat is “jealous” and wants to present the show herself.
“I think the truth is that Cat would love to be hosting the show,” Louis told The Mirror.
“But we have already got Dermot [O’Leary] and he is the best in the business.
“She can stay on Sky 1 where nobody is watching…It is a bit of the green-eyed monster from Cat… Sorry Cat, we don’t need you.”
Louis’ harsh words come after Cat revealed that she thinks people get “bored” with shows like X Factor/
“I think every big show like that is cyclical, like Britain’s Got Talent or America’s Got Talent,” The 40-year-old admitted.
“It was Opportunity Knocks about 25 years ago – they are hugely successful and then people get bored, and then they put them away for a bit, then they miss them, then they bring them back.”
