Pete Waterman: "Michelle is rubbish"
Pete Waterman has broken his silence over Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus by branding her "rubbish".

Waterman, 57, stormed off the set when the result was announced last month and up until yesterday had refused to comment on Michelle's victory.

“The winner was rubbish and I think her low sales probably reflect that," he said. “She won’t even last six months.???

He went on to claim that Simon Cowell had an "agenda" for the second series. “He wanted Michelle to win and she did. Will Young was a fantastic winner, Michelle is not. She is simply not a big talent and is certainly not a pop idol. Even the people of Scotland are bored with her.???

Fellow judge Neil Fox hit back at Pete for his comments. “Pete has behaved like a prat," said Foxy. "I wish he’d shut up and be happy for Michelle. She’s got a great voice and I think the public are really warming to her.???
