Simon Cowell: Louis Walsh and Cheryl Fernandez Versini 'like Tom and Jerry'
Simon Cowell says Louis Walsh and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are "like Tom and Jerry".
The 55-year-old music mogul has compared the pair to the cartoon cat and mouse after confessing he wishes Louis and Cheryl would get into more arguments on the judging panel of 'The X Factor' instead of slamming one another on Twitter.
He said: "There was always going to be a clash, they're like Tom and Jerry these two. I wish they'd fight more on the show actually. Why do it on Twitter?"
The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge spoke out after Louis blasted the 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer for being "lazy" and "irrelevant" in a magazine interview, prompting Cheryl to bite back claiming the music manager has "some kind of obsession" with her.
Simon also appeared to confirm reports Louis will not be returning to the judging panel for the upcoming series while Cheryl will by suggesting that they ask Louis to come and sit in the audience just to wind the brunette beauty up.
He added to ITV's 'Good Morning Britain': "What we should do, is just invite Louis down every week just to argue with Cheryl!"
