Sinitta has revealed that Louis Walsh is 'besotted' with Britney Spears following his guest stint on The X Factor USA.
The Irish boyband mogul stepped in for Simon Cowell at last week's Kansas City tryouts, sitting beside the iconic 'Toxic' hitmaker for two days of filming.
Speaking to Heat, Sinitta said: ''Louis is absolutely besotted with Britney. I called him the other day and it's all he talked about.
"They're new BFFs, and they're in contact with each other a lot!''
Interviewed after filming last week, Louis admitted: "Britney and I are bonding."
Brit meanwhile added: "I have so much fun with him."
The 'I want to see you in the final' proclaimer also made fans in Demi Lovato and LA Reid.
"There is only one Simon...but Louis killed it," said Demi, while LA admitted: "I absolutely love working with Louis.I find him fascinatingly quick, thorough, and remarkably entertaining."
Cowell returns to the panel tomorrow for filming in San Francisco.
