Louis Walsh has ripped into his former Celebrity Big Brother housemates in a scathing interview following his exit from the show.

Oh, but he’s vowed to be nicer in the future, if that’s any consolation…

The former X Factor judge, 71, finished in fourth place on Friday night, while Ibiza Weekender icon David Potts, 30, emerged victorious as the first winner of CBB’s ITV reboot.

There’s no denying that Louis was a controversial housemate from the get-go, dividing opinion with his catty remarks and by spilling plenty of showbiz tea with celebrity lodger Sharon Osbourne.

Speaking out for the first time after the final, the Irish music manager shared what he really thinks about the stars he lived with for three weeks.

He told The Sun that his series was ‘too woke’ and admitted it got ‘boring’ since people were tip-toeing around one another.

‘You know what really annoys me, though? All this kissing and hugging [on the show]. You don’t even know each other! So fake! They all wanted to win,’ he blasted.

‘That was the bottom line on the show. There was nothing controversial that happened really because everyone was too wary, too woke, everyone is too careful what they say and it all becomes bland and boring.’

On acquiring a reputation as the resident gossip, Louis said he made a conscious decision not to be like everyone else.

‘I was just sitting there like an observer and telling people what I thought of what was happening in there,’ he confessed.

‘I was only telling the truth. I wasn’t trying to be catty, I was just reporting what I saw. I was brought up to say it like it is. Some of the housemates were just boring and bland and playing to the cameras.’

Halfway through his stint in the famous compound, Louis revealed that he had been diagnosed with cancer during the pandemic, which nobody knew about.

He’s now described it as ‘a great reality check’, having not even been aware of the disease being present until he went to hospital.

The type of cancer Louis was diagnosed with was macroglobulinemia, a rare type of blood cancer which is incurable. But, he is ‘living with it and managing it’.

Reflecting on his candid discussion, Louis added that ‘this whole experience’, being Celebrity Big Brother, is ‘going to change’ him.

‘I’m going to try and be a better person,’ he declared.

‘I am going to try and be nicer. I am a bit catty. I always let people know what I think of them, that’s just me.’

His confession also made a real difference outside the walls of the CBB house, as searches for his diseases shot up 18,200%, with the Blood Cancer UK charity publicly thanking him for raising awareness.

Although, if being ‘nicer’ involves keeping in touch with all of his ex-housemates, perhaps they shouldn’t hold their breath.

Dishing out his verdict, Louis said Fern Britton – who finished fifth – is ‘ok’, despite believing she ‘desperately wanted to win.’

He proceeded to compare her to ‘wallpaper’ because ‘she doesn’t give you anything’ – ouch.

As for Strictly Come Dancing pro Nikita Kuzmin, Louis said the runner-up ‘is very ambitious’ but predicts he ‘will become a star’.

He’s also a fan of Levi Roots, ‘a totally genuine man’ and has even swapped numbers with third-placed star, Coronation Street’s Colson Smith.

Asked if he has any regrets about what he said during his time on Celebrity Big Brother, Louis held his hands up to being ‘a bit harsh’ towards Dannii Minogue.

As for Ronan Keating, he ‘doesn’t resent’ him and knows his tongue-lashings will rile up the Boyzone star.

Meanwhile, Louis said his past disagreements with Cheryl were ‘healthy’ and, erm, wants Sir Bob Geldof to ‘have a bath’ to ‘clean himself up’, so take that as you will.

What’s next for the TV star? Well, Louis doesn’t know, but he hasn’t ruled out doing pantomine in the future, so if you thought the end of CBB marked the last time you’d see him in Showbizland, think again…
