‘I’M NOT THE MEAN JUDGE’
Alex Reid has set tongues wagging with his tell-it-like-it-is attitude. But now the talent manager, already dubbed “the mean judge”, wants to set the record straight. “I would prefer to say honest judge,” he tells New Idea. “Sometimes you just need someone to say, ‘hey, this isn’t for you, you need to find something else.’”
Of course, Alex knows it isn’t always easy performing, especially in front of the show’s 100-strong judging panel. “I do feel bad sometimes,” he admits. “It does take a lot of guts to get up on that stage and perform.”
Alex doesn’t hold back when it comes to giving feedback.
