The X Factor judge said: “They asked me to get involved but I couldn’t stand up. The emotions and nerves would be worse than any 'X Factor’ show. I don’t like real life – that’s why I love the pop business, because it’s not real.”
Walsh added: “The funeral will hit me hard because it still hasn’t sunk in that he’s gone. I’m dazed. It will be an awful, dreadful day.”
“If he’s looking down on us from heaven, he’s going to love it and be so proud. He gave the world so much joy, so it’s only right that’s how we remember him.”
Aside from Gately’s funeral in Dublin, there are also rumours that a memorial service for the singer will be held in London.
