He said: “I told Simon he was making a big mistake sending off Janet but he just wouldn’t listen that day.

“I told him he should keep her above all the others, now he really regrets it but it’s too late.

“I can’t believe I have never heard of Janet Grogan before. She’s a real talent and a fantastic performer.

“I just love her. She… should go for something like Eurovision.”

The Mayo man also admitted he battled to save Orla – with telling earlier how he’s brought her back for the live shows as his wildcard.

He said: “Mel B and I thought Cheryl was crazy. We both tried to tell Cheryl that Orla was one of her better singers. Mel B told Cheryl she’d made a huge mistake but she didn’t listen.”
