Louis Walsh takes a dig at Cheryl Cole`s stardom

London: Ex-boyzone manager Louis Walsh says singer Nadine Coyle would have had a successful solo career had she married a famous footballer just like her Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl Cole.

Cheryl was married to footballer Ashley Cole for four years before ending their marriage in 2010.

"But she (Nadine) didn`t marry a footballer. If she`d married a footballer she`d have been a big star," a magazine quoted Walsh as saying.

Walsh is currently seen as a judge on reality show ‘The X Factor’.
