It remains to be seen whether Terry Winstanley makes it through in tonight’s X Factor.

Winstanley labelled Walsh, who was given the job of mentoring the over-25s, ‘useless’, and said that as soon as the cameras stopped rolling, Walsh didn’t help his contestants.

He told the Sunday People newspaper: ‘Louis doesn’t give a toss about us, he was useless. We saw him three times – when he welcomed us to Barcelona, when we sang and for his final decision.

‘He gave us no advice, no inspiration at all, that’s not a mentor.’
