Did You Know?
Radio DJ Chris Evans
was supposed to be the third judge in the programme, but pulled out of the show (rumours have it because he did not wish Geri Halliwell
who he had previously dated). The producers then approached Sharon Osbourne
in Evan's replacement, but Osbourne was unable to get time due to on-going commitments. In the end Louis Walsh
who had previously judged the Irish edition, replaced Evans. See more
