Alesha Dixon: 'Louis Walsh is crazy!'

Alesha Dixon "takes no responsibility" for the choices Louis Walsh made after she helped him at The X Factor's Judges' Houses.

Alesha Dixon enjoyed helping Louis Walsh during the Judges' Houses segment of The X Factor.

The former Mis-Teeq singer was on hand to help Louis whittle down the singing hopefuls vying to be put through to the live shows. After joining him in Ibiza for the process, Alesha told Good Morning Britain's Richard Arnold she is doing her best to distance herself from the decisions Louis eventually made.

"It's really exciting," Alesha said of her time on Judges' Houses. "Obviously can't reveal too much apart from the fact that Louis is crazy, we had such a laugh, I tried to advise him but I take no responsibility for the choices that he made!"

Louis is known for putting eccentric acts through in his category - he was responsible for the success of John and Edward Grimes, a.k.a. Jedward, and Wagner among others.

While Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne are expected to host their Judges' Houses in Los Angeles, Nicole Scherzinger is in the south of France with DJ Calvin Harris.

Calvin teased fans on Snapchat about his involvement in the programme. He began the clip by saying, "What's good?" before turning the camera to Nicole, who says: "I mean, we're just chilling at my villa here in the South of France."

While Calvin acknowledged the luxurious property was "quite nice", neither he nor Nicole made any mention of being in the country for The X Factor.

However, Roman Kemp, the son of Spandau Ballet legend Martin Kemp who is now working as The X Factor's digital presenter, then shared a wide shot of the south of France location, with figures that appeared to be Nicole and Calvin, seen in the distance.

Judges' Houses will mark the first time Calvin has been on The X Factor since 2009, when boss Simon Cowell banned him after he invaded the stage during Jedward's performance.
