Louis Walsh's Diary: The truth about fix claims?
All the latest news and gossip from The X Factor...
Walsh denied being coached on how to vote by an X Factor producer and revealed all in his Mail Online Diary: “I jump for joy when all my acts go through. I’m not sure who I’m going to choose between Rylan Clark and Carolynne Poole."
“Producer Richard Holloway comes over to talk to us before they perform. He does that every week to tell us what order to go in when we give our verdict because they have to get the cameras set up right. He tells me I will be last.”
Louis explained that he couldn't make his mind up between the two acts: “I feel like I'm looking stupid, like a rabbit in the headlights, but that’s the thing about the X Factor, it’s live, it’s real, anything can happen."
And the next morning: “I wake up to find a huge fuss brewing. People are Tweeting that last night was a fix, and a picture is published showing Richard talking to me. The story is that he’s telling me how to vote — but that’s not true.
“Not only has no one ever told any of us what to do, but that picture was taken before the artists sang, so no one could have known how their performance was going to be judged.”
Hmmm... something doesn't add up? Carolynne Poole is on record as saying that Richard Holloway spoke to Louis during her performance, not before. In fact she said it put her off.
Add to that the fact that Louis put Carolynne through initially, then changed his mind and I'd say we're still no closer to the truth. It wasn't that he couldn't make his mind up, he opted to save her and then took it back - she was celebrating at the time.
