Hopkins fails Si's acid test.
NATALIA Kills and her husband Willy Moon lasted for one show as judges of the New Zealand X Factor before they were fired, quite rightly, for their gratuitous, unfunny nastiness towards a contestant.
But who employed these two nonentity boneheads in the first place? Louis Walsh is disgusted and says they'll never work again.
Oh yes they will.
There's a market for gratuitous, unfunny nastiness these days.
How else do you explain Katie Hopkins, who was rumoured recently to be joining the Britain's Got Talent judging panel? Luckily Simon Cowell ruled it out, saying, "I'd rather take a bath, fill it with vinegar, cut myself a thousand times and immerse myself slowly for an hour than work with her."
And that's his quality as a judge - he speaks for all of us.
