Louis Walsh has poked fun at Simon Cowell for wearing stacked heels.

The Irish judge was whisked to the US at the last minute to stand in for his X Factor boss at the Kansas leg of the US X Factor auditions, after Simon fell ill with bronchitis.

Louis joked: "I'm stepping into Simon's shoes... but my shoes are flat," The Sun reported.

Fellow judge LA Reid also had a pop at Simon, with the music producer saying: "The good news is we're having a great time. The bad news is that we're having a great time."

Louis has formed an unlikely friendship with judge Britney Spears, saying of the Toxic singer: "Britney and I are bonding," while the US singer tweeted: "We'll miss you Louis! See you soon."

Meanwhile Reid said of his relationship with Britney: "We get along good..." before looking at Louis and joking: "Him, not so much."

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
