Returning X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has lifted the lid on her feelings for fellow judge Louis Walsh.
“It’s a little bit frosty,” she tells Graham Norton as she begins filming the audition process with Simon Cowell and former Spice Girl Mel B, too.
The former Girls Aloud star had posted a Twitter snap of her cuddling up to Louis with Mel B earlier in the week, suggesting things were all hunky dory, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
When asked if things are 'off with him', Cole replies, “They were never on!”
But perhaps Cole shouldn’t worry. While its thought Cowell was the voice behind ensuring Walsh returned to the show for his eleventh series, he was absent from the music mogul’s messages of praise.
Following the first round of in-room auditions Cowell tweeted:
Couldn’t have chucked in a quick mention of Louis too Simon?
Anyway, regardless of her feelings for Mr Walsh, Cole seems to be feeling at home on the show.
“It feels like I’ve never been away.”
