Earlier in the series, Louis came under fire from viewers for giving novelty singing duo Bratavio a spot in the live shows, ahead of fan favourites 4 Of Diamonds.
Louis has since admitted that girl groups aren’t usually his thing, telling Yahoo UK: “I don’t particularly like working with girl bands because it’s very hard to find a girl band that all get on.”
He does have high hopes for 4 Of Diamonds, though, adding: “These four seem like really good friends and we picked our song for Saturday, the theme is Motown, I’m very glad that I have them now.
While Louis has previously managed the likes of Boyzone and Westlife, his time looking after girl groups has been slightly less successful.
After Girls Aloud triumphed in ‘Popstars: The Rivals’ back in 2002, he briefly served as their manager, though the girls eventually gave him the boot.
Band member Cheryl Fernandez-Versini later told Marie Claire: “Louis claimed to be our manager but he never did it.
“We didn’t talk to him or anything like that. He just took a cheque. Literally, we didn’t have management.”
See how 4 Of Diamonds get on in their ‘X Factor’ return in Saturday’s show, airing at 8pm on ITV.
