X Factor judge Louis Walsh defends the integrity of the reality show
The Over 28s mentor is adamant that the
judging panel – Simon Cowell, Dannii Minogue, Cheryl Cole and himself – are
kept in the dark about their finalists’ positions until Dermot O’Leary reveals the bottom two contestants on a Sunday night.
And they definitely don’t collude about who to save.
‘None of us know what is going on in advance,’ says Louis, 58. ‘It’s a public vote.
We don’t discuss who we’re going to get in
or keep out.
We just want our own acts to win.’
