Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell have upset fellow X Factor judge Louis Walsh by not putting a contestant through, who he backed 100 per cent.
The Irish boyband manager was said to be very frustrated by their decision and left the panel to console the male singer.
Simon Cowell reportedly made a last-minute decision not to have a guest judge at the London auditions, meaning that Louis was outnumbered when both Cheryl and Simon rejected the wannabe.
Louis is said to have stormed off to comfort the hopeful but he returned to the panel in time to see the next act.
Meanwhile, the next guest judge to sit in for pregnant Dannii Minogue is said to be popstar Katy Perry, who will be joining the Dublin auditions.
