Louis Walsh branded the pair "vile" in a conversation aired on last night's episode of Celebrity Big Brother

Former X Factor duo Jedward have hit out at ex-talent show judge Louis Walsh and he branded them "vile" in a conversation in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Viewers watched Walsh, 71, in last night's episode (March 12) as he spoke to Coronation Street actor Colson Smith about the famous pair. The former X Factor judge told the actor that boys were "vile" and a "novelty" act but that they were "great for the show". Jedward, made up of brothers John and Edward Grimes, grew to fame on the show's sixth series in 2009, becoming easily recognisable to fans with their towering haircuts and energetic performances.

Walsh, who managed the pair after their X Factor stint, said of Jedward: "They were vile. They were vile, but they were great. I got 5 million quid for them, I swear on my mother’s life."

The boys, who lost their mother Suzanna to cancer in 2019, were quick to snap back at Walsh on social media after the scene was aired on the show. They posted on X (formerly Twitter: "Louis Walsh is a cold hearted b*****d who didn’t even send us flowers when our mom died." In a further post, Jedward said: "Louis Walsh tried to make us sign our name and life away in dodgy contracts to people he was great friends with without our mom we wouldn’t be here today! What an absolute weirdo with bad intentions for all ..does he like anyone?"

John and Edward said that Walsh had "reopened these wounds all by himself being spiteful and disrespectful". Viewers have watched the ongoing Celebrity Big Brother series as Walsh continues to give his views on big names from the celebrity world, including Andrew Lloyd Webber who he called "a bit of a freak", and former Boyzone member Ronan Keating, who he branded a "pr**k".
