Revealing the atmosphere has been competitive, catty Louis let on he liked Katy Perry, but didnt get on at all well with Geri Halliwell, admitting their had been rows’ over contestants and ‘rivalry’ between judges.
‘Its been tense this year, not just because of what has happened to Cheryl,’ Louis told Star magazine.
‘Theres rivalry among the judges and there have been a few rows. It gets competitive and viewers will see plenty of drama.’
‘I liked Natalie Imbruglia and Katy Perry was great fun. As for Geri Halliwell all I can say is, “Geri who?” I mean, what does she know about the music business? She got the most boos, too.’
Revealing he was looking forward to Cheryls return, Louis praised the songstresss unfaltering glamour.
‘Everyone misses Cheryls glamour, Ive never once seen her look bad,’ he said.
