Xit Louis. See ya.

So Louis Walsh has been booted off X-Factor by Simon Cowell. At last, a sensible reverse “talent” spotting decision. How on earth did it take so long? If only ITV had put the eviction to a phone line vote, it would have made a fortune without any complaints.

And Kate Thornton has gone, too, although I can’t think what else she could have done to present it better. Anyway, only one more person to go – Shazza – and X-Factor might even be watchable.

Ah, Louis, so many happy memories …
