The X Factor judge says they are good friends


Louis Walsh has revealed he considers Simon Cowell his closest pal.

The X Factor
judge, 56, says the pair are firm friends despite their rows on the ITV1 show.

‘Simon is Simon,’ he tells Live magazine. ‘He takes the piss. But he’s funny and he only does it because he knows you can take it.

‘People think we hate each other because we say terrible things, but he’s my best mate. And he’s a good guy, too.’
