New puppets of The X Factor judges Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger will debut in the second series of satirical sketch show Newzoids.

They join existing puppets of fellow judges Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne.


Nicole’s puppet is clad in a leopard print halterneck gown with long flowing brown hair, while Louis is sporting a purple jacket and shirt, with coiffed grey hair and white eyebrows.


They join the new puppets of Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and Princess Charlotte, which were unveiled last week.

Former X Factor judges Cheryl and Nick Grimshaw will also feature in the new series when it returns to ITV in September.
