Noel Gallagher has branded 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh ''insane'' and ''mad as a box of frogs''

Noel Gallagher has branded 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh "insane".

The former Oasis rocker - who turned down an offer of a place on the panel of the ITV1 show from music mogul Simon Cowell - wishes there was a 3D version of the programme, so he could lean in to his television and strangle Louis "a little bit".

He said: "He's insane. That's why they should bring it out in 3D, 'The X Factor', so you could literally lean into the television and just press on his throat a little bit."

Noel - who watches the show with his 11-year-old daughter Anais - admitted while he guessed correctly which contestants would be eliminated from the series last weekend, he thought Louis would save soldier Jonjo Kerr over "lunatic in the tin foil hat" Johnny Robinson.

Speaking on the Christian O'Connell Breakfast show on Absolute Radio - which he co-hosted - Noel added: "I called them right coming out of the judge's houses, called them all right, and I got them all right on Saturday night apart from the soldier that went home.

"I thought he might stay and that other lunatic in the tin foil hat . But, you see, Louis Walsh, he's mad as a box of frogs isn't he? He lives in a parallel universe."
