Louis Walsh has spoken out about which female X Factor judge is the bigger diva.

“I used to think it was Dannii but now it may be Cheryl,” he said.

“We had a disagreement a couple of weeks ago because I felt she was only interested in her own opinion on the show. I’m there to say what I think, so I wasn’t going to just roll over because it was Cheryl Cole.”

“She didn’t like it when I said the show wasn’t all about her.”

“The X Factor needs her,” he admitted. “When the cameras are turned off, she’s a real sweetie. it’s not all an act with her.”

“We get on well off camera but when the show’s on, all bets are off.”
