X Factor 2010: Louis Walsh says Simon Cowell is Cheryl’s puppet master

X Factor judge Louis Walsh has branded Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole as Simon Cowell’s puppet.

The grey haired Irish man made the comments, when he was asked if he would like to sit beside his ‘best friend’ Cowell on the 2010 judging panel.

He told The Sun:

“I don’t want to sit by him [Cowell]. He’ll have Cheryl there. He’s like her puppet master; he sits there with his hand round her.”

Louis also admitted to having botox, but claimed that all the other judges had done the same.

He said:

“Of course I have [had Botox], and I’ll have it again.

“If the other three judges can do it, why can’t I?”

But a spokesman for Cheryl Cole has denied the claims, saying that she is too young to need the treatment.
