She might have wooed Simon Cowell and the world but Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle hasn't hit the right notes for X Factor judge Louis Walsh.

He has declared that he's not a fan of the spinster, dubbed the 'hairy angel', who has taken the world by storm.

"Susan is a pretty good singer but she's not a great singer," claims the pop guru.

And Walsh believes that the assumption Boyle will win the competition could be wide of the mark.

Bookies have installed Boyle as the favourite to win the talent show based on her huge media exposure.

Susan, whose parents Patrick and Bridget were Irish, has been a regular pilgrim to Walsh's home county where she honed her voice at Knock Basilica.

However, that hasn't been enough to impress the man behind acts such as Boyzone and Westlife.

Since appearing on the show she has been invited onto numerous American chat shows and become a YouTube sensation.

The 47-year-old left judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden dumbfounded with her performance of I Dreamed A Dream.

Many of her own neighbours in the village of Blackburn in West Lothian, Scotland heard her heavenly voice for the first time when she joined them on the annual Legion of Mary pilgrimage to Knock shrine.
