LOUIS Walsh has reignited his feud with Cheryl saying she can’t sing despite the impending to release of her album. And he branded Mariah Carey irrelevant despite being one of the best-selling music artists of all time. He made the comments at last night’s Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year whilst talking about returning Westlife’s collaborations.

It’s not Madonna, because she’d be mobbed, nor Adele whose fans would be queuing to say Hello. Mariah Carey would clearly have a massive entourage shielding her from selfie-seekers. No, the megastar who outranks all three pop queens with her 350 million album sales, is a bespectacled 83-year-old gran from Greece. In the 1970s, Nana Mouskouri was the most famous songstress on British TV with a mellifluous voice that touched millions.
