Louis Walsh managed to big-up a fellow X Factor judge and put down a former X Factor contestant at the same time.

The 59-year-old was speaking about what a good role model Tulisa Contostavlos is when Cher’s name popped up.

“She’s a good role model for girls, unlike Cher Lloyd,” he said.

Louis thinks that Cher lacked the “likeability factor” – something that was definitely in short supply at Party In The Park recently, the young singer was greeted by booing and people even threw objects on stage!

“Cher Lloyd and me are like oil and water,” Louis added, reports Now.

“It was like she thought she was a pop star.

“She got very big for her boots and had no likeability factor.

“She’s the kind of person who could turn into a monster and the people around her are too frightened to tell her so.”
