Louis Walsh 'furious' with Kelly Rowland

X Factor judges Louis Walsh and Kelly Rowland are no longer speaking according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The Irish music manager is said to have been furious with Rowland after the Destiny's Child singer talked over him on a number of occasions during Saturday's live show before openly mocked two of his acts.

Louis, who is charge of the Over 25s category this year, is reported to have complained about Rowland to friends following her behaviour this weekend.

'Kelly has just waltzed in here from America and thinks she knows everything about the show,' Walsh is alleged to have remarked.

An unnamed show insider told the Mail about the bad blood between Rowland and Walsh: 'The way Kelly talked down to him [Walsh] was unacceptable as far as he's concerned. There is no love lost behind the scenes and Louis and Kelly are not speaking off screen and haven't since Saturday night.'

'Louis is just putting all his time into his acts and wants to make sure Kitty, Sami and Johnny have incredible performances,' the source continued. 'He's already working on their next songs and spent time with them on Sunday night as Kelly and Gary were relaxing with their singers in their dressing rooms.'

Louis and Kelly weren't the only two people involved in the show alleged to have a falling out over the weekend according to The Sun.

The paper claims that contestant Frankie Cocozza and his celebrity mentor Gary Barlow had a disagreement after the Take That singer decided to change the teen's song to Coldplay's 'The Scientist' at the last minute.

'There were a lot of fans waiting outside the studio,' an insider told The Sun. 'When Frankie popped out for a cigarette to calm his nerves he told them not to expect much because he'd been given a s**t song.'

'He was grumpy about performing and rightly predicted it would land him in the bottom two. But he didn't dare go against Gary. He was upset, frustrated and worried.'
