Trying to be controversial, Louis Walsh? Good work. But how about calling Tulisa a chav live on TV instead?

As the new series of The X Factor rolls around, guess what? The judges are getting bitchy in the press. Surprise, surprise!

Louis Walsh has kicked off at Tulisa. In an interview with the Radio Times, he’s called poor old Tulisa a chav in a tracksuit’. Meooooow!

It’s nothing that Tulisa hasn’t heard before, but it’s a valiant effort from Louis on the fence’ Walsh.

And Louis sticks his claws in even deeper when he says, she thinks she’s a bigger star than she really is’.

Nice one, Louis! When was the last time you had a number one single? Er, never.

I have to say, though: can’t you take this new-found bitchiness to the live shows, Louis?

I’d love to see you getting super catty on screen. Especially towards the other judges.

Methinks that Tulisa should recreate Sharon Osbourne‘s 2005 water in Louis’s face’ moment. Look it up on Youtube, Tul.

You probably WERE just a chav in a trackie back then, but I bet you’ve got good aim.
