    Liam Payne Told Louis Walsh To "Shut The Fuck Up" After He Slated Cheryl

    Liam hit out after Louis Walsh told a reporter to "Fuck off" after a question about Cheryl returning to the X Factor panel.

    Liam Payne and Cheryl are a match made in X Factor heaven. They met on the show when Cheryl was a judge and Liam became a member of One Direction, but didn't become a couple until earlier this year.

    And they're now expecting their first baby together. ❤️

    Cheryl became one of the public's most-loved X Factor judges of all time, so after she quit the panel for a second time last year, plenty of us are hoping she'll return one day.

    So, it's unsurprising that during an interview with Louis Walsh and his act, 5 After Midnight, Huffington Post asked him whether Simon Cowell would ever ask Cheryl to return.

    Louis began his response by saying that Cheryl isn't needed on the panel, now that she's been replaced by Nicole Scherzinger.

    And said they "don't need another girl" on the panel. 😐

    But he then completely lost it, telling the reporter: "So go and fuck off now."

    Much to the entertainment/bewilderment of 5 After Midnight.

    He then called the question "silly."

    Before literally hitting the reporter's microphone.

    And then brought up Cheryl again, saying the question was "stupid."

    Well, Liam Payne quickly stepped in to not only defend Cheryl, but stick up for 5 After Midnight who didn't manage to get a word in edgeways during the interview.

    Before telling him to "shut the fuck up for once."

    Well, that told Louis.
