Louis Walsh says what he really thinks of Cher Lloyd

X Factor judge Louis Walsh has hit out at popular finalist Cher Lloyd, revealing that he’d hate to be her mentor.

‘I couldn’t work with Cher,’ admits Louis.

‘She thinks she’s going to be a big overnight success, and because she listens to American R&B she’s picked up all these weird musical things and makes funny faces.

‘There’s no likeability there.’

Cher became an instant star after her first audition. The 17-year-old’s interpretation of Soulja Boy‘s Turn My Swag On became a massive YouTube hit.

Cher is believing her own publicity, which is a big mistake,’ says Louis, 58.

‘She’s definitely changed. I don’t get any warmth from her.

‘She needs to learn to be nice to everybody – because you’ll meet them on the way down.’
