X Factor 2012: Gary Barlow & Tulisa Contostavlos just ‘pretending’ to be friends

Louis Walsh has insisted that Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostvalos are not best friends….anything but.

The pair clashed on a recent X Factor show, when the Take That star berated her for her ‘fag ash breath’ and the ‘Young’ hitmaker hit back telling him he smelt like red wine. Tensions ran high between the duo the whole evening but the next week, they insisted everything was fine between them.

However, Louis claimed that they aren’t being totally truthful with fans and viewers and told ITV.com:

“They’re pretending they’re best friends but I know it’s not 100% yet.”

Louis has been Tulisa’s bestie ever since she joined the show last year and the pair are often spotted sharing late night dinners and glasses of wine. He admitted that she told him things between her and Gary aren’t quite back on track and continued:

“It’s going to take time for their friendship to go back to what it was. I won’t be intervening. Tulisa is very much her own woman and doesn’t need me to fight her battles.”

During the interview, Louis also revealed his favourite contestants left on the show this year.

Apart from his one remaining act Union J, Walsh is loving the singing style of Jahmene Douglas and said:

“I love Jahmene. I’ve liked him from day one. He’s the whole package.”

However he’s a big fan of 16 year old Ella Henderson too and added:

“I think Ella’s great too. James Arthur has got great musicality but I don’t think he’s commercial enough.”
