The X-Factor isn't on many of our 'To Watch' lists anymore, despite the fact that it used to be one of the most influential shows on ITV.

An old clip from the show has resurfaced and is causing a LOT of drama , mainly because of Simon Cowell's fat-shaming contestants.

The video went viral after one Twitter user found a clip from the show's early days which highlights the RELENTLESSLY harsh comments given by the judges.

In the clip, a newlywed named Samantha auditions for a place on the star search show, and faces absolute abuse from the judges at the time; Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne.

Sharon says; "I think you have a lovely face and a lovely voice," after Louis refers to the singer as "mission impossible."

Though Samantha is eventually voted through to the next round of The X-Factor, Sharon tells her to "go on a diet" after Simon wonders what she's "willing to do." WHAT?

Another Twitter user reminded the internet of how ruthless the music industry was during those years, claiming "Adele wouldn't have stood a chance of making it even with her amazing voice."

(That's just plain nonsense, Adele could change the WORLD with one single note.)

Other social media users reacted with outrage at the clip, claiming to be "shaken" by the harsh comments, which Simon earned fame for.

We think Samantha is gorgeous inside and out, we hope she's happy and confident wherever she is.

Well, well, well. Louis Walsh has reignited the long-running feud between himself and Cheryl after saying that the whole band didn't like each other and Nadine was the only one who could sing. Ouch!

While speaking on Kate Thornton's Paper Cuts on BBC Radio 2, the music mogul, who was also their former manager said: "I didn't give them a lot of my time but they didn't give me time and they didn't even like each other!"

"It was problems from day one there. I contacted them as much as I could but they didn't like each other," he said.

"It was never going to work because I said Nadine was the best singer and she was. She was the voice of Girls Aloud."

Louis' latest rant will no doubt trigger Cheryl to fight back, and we're looking forward to see what she has to say about the whole thing.

We all know that anything to do with the Kardashian/Jenner clan can cause A LOT of controversy. Whether it's good or bad, it seems that everyone and their mother has an opinion on the TV family. 

In a new short video, filmmaker William Rebein​ pairs a backwards video of Kylie Jenner with an audio soundtrack of some particularly cruel things that were written about the 18-year-old. 

William says, "While reading news articles about Kendall and Kylie in Australia, I was shocked and disgusted by the aggressive comments directed towards Kylie. For years, people have cruelly commented on Kylie's appearance, always putting her against her sisters Kendall and Kim.

"It's unreal that people take the time out of their day to write these comments, and forget that there is a real person potentially seeing these things and internalising them," he said.

"People forget that Kylie Jenner is a real person; just a young 18 year old girl. This anonymous hate culture on gossip sites is out of control, and I thought by reading these comments (which were literally just taken from the top comments of two articles) and showing imagery of Kylie makes them seem more real and realise how painful the words can be."

Here's the video:
