X Factor judge Louis Walsh has reignited his feud with Cheryl Tweedy after he said she could only win the show if she mimed.

And to rub salt into the wound the music manager laughed off claims that Cheryl would be invited back by Simon Cowell to be a judge in the latest series.

Celebrity X Factor will hit our screens this Saturday and will see performances from the likes of Megan McKenna and Ricki Lake.

Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger will all be returning as judges for the hit ITV show – although Cheryl won’t be making a comeback.

Cheryl and Louis have endured a strained relationship for over a decade, which first kicked off when Louis managed Girls Aloud from 2002 to 2004.

It sparked Cheryl’s lengthy disdain for the Irishman and there is no love lost between the pair.

However, Louis, 67, turned on Cheryl when asked if he was surprised that she hadn’t been snapped up as a judge.

Louis, who first sat on the judging panel with Cheryl in 2008, said: ‘You mean as a contestant? She would be good. She could even win it.’

And when asked if the former Girls Aloud singer would have to mime to wine it Louis added: ‘Cheryl doesn’t mime.

‘It’s called lip-syncing.’

Louis last appeared as a judge on the X Factor with pal Simon in 2017, having replaced axed judge Nick Grimshaw the year before.

Then in 2018, he decided to step down and Louis Tomlinson had a shot at the role.

It has also since emerged that Louis left the show in 2012 because he was handed a massive payout by Simon Cowell.

He admitted to Daily Star Online his decision to walk away was simply due to him being ‘paid off’ rather than an epic row behind the scenes.

We have reached out for a comment from Cheryl’s reps to see what she says about this.
