It has been reported that Louis Walsh has quit 'X Factor', after constant disagreements with fellow judges Sharon Osbourne and Simon Cowell.

According to The Sun, 'X Factor' bosses are holding crisis talks in an attempt to get Walsh to remain as a judge on the show until the end of the current series.

According to the report, Walsh said: "I have been totally humiliated and undermined by both of them. This has caused me nothing but stress... I have had enough. I'm going back to Dublin. I'm not putting up with it any more."

Osbourne threw three glasses of water over Walsh on last week's live show and Cowell branded him an "idiot".

Cowell reportedly said: "I've been called all sorts of things but I have taken it in the spirit it was meant. I have known Louis for years. I know what a success he is. If I offended him, I apologise. We want him back."

According to the report Osbourne also said that she would like Walsh to reconsider his decision, saying that she liked and respected him and was shocked and saddened by his decision to quit the show.

A spokersperson for the ITV show said: "We are talking to Louis and we hope we will be able to persuade him to return to the show on Saturday."
