Would Louis ever return to X Factor?

He needs a few lines!

– Louis Walsh

Of course we miss Louis (can't the panel have five Judges?!), but does he miss The X Factor? The former Judge tells us what he thinks of the new line-up.

Louis says Simon Cowell is in serious need of new one-line zingers that we know him for, and says that he misses seeing his own face on the panel!

I still think it's the best show on TV

– Louis Walsh

Would he ever come back to the show? Never say never! Louis says the most fun he had on the show was with fellow Judges Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger, and Gary Barlow.

With the right line-up, perhaps he could be back on our screens very soon.

HomeTown are Lorraine's number one

When we started out we were from all different parts of Ireland - but we've worked together lots over the last year.

– Cian Morrin

HomeTown, Louis Walsh's latest boy band, sat down to chat to Lorraine about their experiences of forming a band. The six heart throbs from Ireland did not know each other before they joined HomeTown, but have since become firm friends.

The band is made up of: Brendan Murray (18), Cian Morrin (20), Dayl Cronin (21), Dean Gibbons (21), Josh Gray (17) and Ryan McLoughlin (21), who are all from different parts of Ireland. Their new single, Where I Belong, is out now.
