Louis Walsh has slammed Jedward as his most embarrassing career move.
The Irish music manager and ex- X Factor judge Louis Walsh has revealed that the most embarrassing moment of his career is Jedward, the twin singers whom he mentored during the 2009 series of the show – he then plunged the knife in even further by saying that they were no-longer in touch.
Speaking to Woman’s Own this week the music mogul said the camp twins who appeared in 2009’s series of X FACTOR revealed that they were his most embarrassing career move, despite championing them and praising them highly on the show. They came sixth on the show and have a relatively successful career that’s seen them release 3 albums and even represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Sources have hinted that Louis could be returning to the X Factor for the next series along with Sharon Osbourne and Simon Cowell – although the judging panel has not yet been disclosed.
The move would see the three original judges return to the show, something which TV execs are hoping will save the show’s popularity, which suffered its worst ratings ever last series.
