Louis Walsh: 'Girls Aloud didn't get along'

By
Louis Walsh has reignited his feud with Girls Aloud by claiming that they "pretend to get on well in public".

The X Factor judge, who used to manage the recently-retired girl group, said that they would fight over who was the skinniest when he worked with them.

"I didn't enjoy working with Nadine, Kimberley, Nicola, Sarah or Cheryl either," Walsh told the Daily Star Sunday.

"They didn't get along with each other and hated me. I found their rivalry difficult to cope with. It's hard to get them to get on well.

"They all pretend to get on well in public, but underneath, all they want is to be the skinniest and go out with the most famous footballer and be in the middle of pictures and all that."

Walsh managed Girls Aloud after they were put together on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, but has clashed with the singers on several occasions since parting ways.

Cheryl Cole claimed that he had "zero involvement" with the group but still took a percentage of their earnings, leading Walsh to state that their friendship is over.

He later took a swipe at his former X Factor co-star by saying that Nadine Coyle could have had Cole's success if she had also married a footballer.
