Rizzle Kicks have branded 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh a "puppet" and say they won't be watching 'The X Factor' this year because they can't bear to watch him on the show

Rizzle Kicks have branded Louis Walsh a "puppet".

The 'Down with the Trumpets' duo - Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule - claim they won't be watching 'The X Factor' this year because they can't bear to watch the 61-year-old music manager dishing out advice to hopefuls.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Jordan said: "I don't think I could stand to see Louis Walsh on that programme ever again.

"The guy is a puppet. He prayed to Jedward."

The pop act also slammed Jedward - real names John and Edward Grimes - for being irritating and insist they won't be seen in the same room as the blonde twins because they would end up hurtling abuse at them.

Harley said: "Jedward are so annoying, I walked out before I had to meet them."

Jordan added: "I don't think they're horrible guys, they are nice but I just don't like the situation they've been put in."

Harley explained: "They're so hyperactive; I just wouldn't be able to deal with it. I'd end up saying something mean to them so I'd just walk out."

Rizzle Kicks' new single 'Lost Generation' is out on August 26, followed by their new album, 'The Roaring 20s', which is out September 2 on Island Records.
