Louis Walsh Takes A Tumble On X Factor
Irishman uninjured in fall as the judges are given their categories...
According to the Sunday People, staff rushed to help the Irish panel member after he tumbled from the stage whilst filming an opening credits sequence.
An XF insider told the paper that all four judges were ready to shoot the green screen footage when Louis “suddenly fell off the stage”.
But it's unlikely Louis will be appearing on You’ve Been Framed any time soon.
The source said: “They were worried about him at first, of course, although Simon was gutted they didn’t manage to get the incident on camera when they realised he was fine!”
There was also reportedly “an element of frustration” for the other judges, as Louis continued to joke about his fall.
The gossip explained: “It took them longer than anticipated to film the sequence - almost an hour - because of all the interruptions.”
In other X Factor news, the contestants have been assigned their mentors - the Sunday People claims Louis will be in charge of the groups, Mel B has got the boys’ category, Cheryl’s leading the girls, and Simon is said to be “really chuffed” with the over-25s category.
