Louis Walsh is back on TV screens, but this time it isn't to create the next singing sensation. Best known for being a judge on The X Factor, the music manager has managed the likes of Jedward, Westlife and Boyzone.

Similarly to some of the other celebrities taking part in this year's show, Walsh was one of the first names to be rumoured for the series.

"The team behind the programme are being clever about the kind of celebs they're considering," a source told The Sun.

"They don't just want big names in there - they want stars who will bring something truly intriguing. Louis is just the kind of figure they want in the house - someone with serious life experience who not only has something to say, but isn't afraid to say it."
