Simon Cowell has admitted that he should have called Louis Walsh to tell him he had been axed from The X Factor.
Simon was criticised by many - including Sharon Osbourne - for failing to inform Walsh personally that he would not be a judge on the new series of the show.
He told The Sun: “I should have called Louis - he has every reason to believe he’s been stabbed in the back. At some stage we are going to have a conversation and I’ll see how he feels."
“But he’s got to get off his chest what he wants to get off his chest - he thinks I stabbed him in the back.”
