ACCORDING TO REPORTS this morning, Louis Walsh has been sacked from the X Factor judging panel after 11 years in the seat.

The Sun has revealed that Louis won’t be returning to the talent competition this year, with a source citing that viewers had “become sick of Louis’s constant use of tired clichés and the same old jokes”.

WHAT. These clichés? We love em.

1. You’re like a young [insert person they vaguely resemble]


2. The seal clap



3. The girls/boys at home are gonna love you

Usually said to the hottest contestants.

4. The bop

Oh, we’ll miss that chin groove.



5. You’ve got the whole package

You LOOK like a popstar, you SOUND like a popstar. You ARE a popstar.


6. You could be the next big boyband

8. You’re in the final

Usually said to a contestant when they’re… in the final. No sh*t.


9. People should vote for you because you’re Irish

Never one to hide his alliances, was our Louis.


10. YOU are the one to beat in this competition

While wagging his pen in their general direction.

Don’t go Louis!
