The X Factor UK
X Factor UK (2004-current) judge Louis Walsh has been on the show since day 1 – apart from his season 12 (2015) sabbatical – and few are better qualified for the job. But 64-year-old Louis often makes news for the wrong reasons…
While Louis and his former 1
client, singer Ronan Keating, have buried the hatchet, Louis told the press in 2000, “He’s not a great singer and has no personality.”
In 2012, Leonard 2
Watters was jailed for six months for falsely claiming that Louis sexually assaulted him in a nightclub.
And in 2014, his 3
former school dinner lady told fans that little Louis cried when no one wanted to play with him.
