X Factor to throw Louis Walsh a party as auditions return to Dublin

There's going to be a green carpet, people


The X Factor is heading to Dublin tomorrow so of course they’re throwing a huge party for Irish judge Louis Walsh.


There’s going to be a green carpet and everything. Don’t say they don’t do anything for you now that you’re back, eh, Louis?

It’s been a while since X Factor judges’ auditions were held in Dublin. The last time they headed to the Emerald Isle was in 2010 – although that went rather well given that they found Niall Horan…

Yep, Niall Horan of One Direction fame. No pressure Dublin, but if you could just produce a couple more Nialls that’d be fantastic.

We’re told there’s more to expect beyond the green carpet so keep your eyes peeled for some genuine Louis Walsh excitement…


The X Factor returns to ITV later this year
