Gemma Collins defends Jedward after Louis Walsh’s rant where he branded them as ‘vile’

Gemma Collins defends Jedward after Louis Walsh’s rant where he branded them as ‘vile’

She took to Instagram to praise the pair

There's yet another update in the whole Louis Walsh and Jedward saga.

During last night's episode (12 March), the former X Factor judge discussed what it was like working with the Irish duo when he used to manage them back in 2009.

He said: "They were vile… I got five million quid with them, I swear on my mother’s life.

"They were novelty, they were great for the show."

Well, since then, Gemma Collins has rushed in to defend Jedward after Louis' rant. Have a look:

The musicians - whose real names are John and Edward Grimes - took to Twitter to share with their 645.4K followers their reaction to Louis' comments with a series of tweets.

They penned: "Louis Walsh is a cold-hearted b*stard who didn’t even send us flowers when our mom died.

"Louis Walsh b*tched and talked about us to our best friend Tara Reid and then we fired him!

"Louis Walsh is an evil manipulator who forced us into an office to pay £70k+ to from our bank account to one of his own PR workers.

Jedward gave their side of the situation on Gemma Collins' Instagram story.

"Louis Walsh tried to make us sign our name and life away in dodgy contracts to people he was great friends with without our mom we wouldn’t be here today!

"What an absolute weirdo with bad intentions for all... does he like anyone?"

They also claimed: "Girls Aloud hate Louis! Jedward hate Louis! Ronan Keating hates Louis! All future acts should be made aware of what this VILE man is really like."

And the final tweet at the time of writing reads: "Louis reopened these wounds all by himself being spiteful and disrespectful we aren’t going to have our character taken. Justice will be served."

The TOWIE star took to Instagram to defend the duo.

Last night, the TOWIE star - who was having a roast dinner with the twins when the episode aired - also shared her response to Louis' rant on Instagram with several videos.

She also uploaded a picture of the three of them with the caption: "Shocked to see what was said about my boys.

"They are the sweetest talented polite educated kind boys I’ve ever met hence why they are always in my company !!! TEAM JEDWARD!"

Jedward then commented on the post: "Gemma, thank you for your love and support and keeping us calm in this crazy situation! You’re a true friend!"

LADbible Group has reached out to Louis Walsh's representative for comment.

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
