X Factor Celebrity’s Thom Evans takes savage swipe at judge Louis Walsh

X Factor Celebrity's Thom Evans made a savage dig at judge Louis Walsh after his performance with band Try star.

Louis was criticising the group saying they had one lead singer with two "backing singers."

He said: "We heard this before…I loved them but we've heard it before."

Rugby player Tom quickly shot back at Louis, 67 saying: "Louis I just want to say with all due respect, you've been a backing singer to Simon for most of your life."

However, viewers were more focused on Thom's dig at Louis instead of their performance.

One wrote: "I'm still laughing" with three laughing face emojis.

While another typed: "Oh no you didn't!"

"Did that comment just make Thom ten times more attractive or was it just me?" said a third viewer.
