Louis Walsh has been slammed by last year's X Factor finalists Eton Road for not fulfilling the promise he made them. The silver-haired music mogul vowed to get the group a music deal - but they say they have heard nothing since. Band member James Edwards told the Daily Star: "We've been left high and dry because Louis didn't keep his word. We're very upset. It gives false hopes to people on the show." The four-piece were told they could compete with the likes of Westlife and Take That - but then they faced the judges vote alongside Ben Mills, and Sharon and Simon decided to save Ben. Louis told the audience: "I'll get these guys a recording deal. This is the start." The band are still waiting for a deal - and their problems escalated after band member Anthony Hannah left to pursue a solo career. James added: "Millions of people heard Louis say he'd get us a record deal and nothing has happened. It's very embarrassing as everyone's asking if we're signed - and we're not. "I'd hate for anyone on this year's show to be told they will get a record deal and then spend months hanging around with false hopes. It's soul destroying."
