Forget the Queen and move over Mary Berry, you are not the most popular people in the UK.
Simon Cowell says that accolade belongs to his former X Factor co-judge Louis Walsh.
The pop mogul hailed the Irishman, who is reported to be making a return as a guest judge in some of the X Factor’s live shows.
Cowell told the Sun: “I spoke to Louis and I said, ’I don’t know what has happened but you are suddenly the most popular person in this country’. And he said, ’I know’”.
“I can’t explain it. I think people obviously miss him. For Louis’ sake it has been good for him not being on the show and seeing how much people like him.”
