Irish music moghul Louis Walsh has said he’s preparing to launch a brand new boy band this year.
The X Factor judge said that he has already been auditioned for the new group, telling The Mirror: “I’m doing a brand new boy band that will be ready to go next year”.
“They’re going to rehearse for the month of January, see the record companies in February and take it from there.
“No familiar faces, all new kids that have never been on a talent show or anything. I auditioned a thousand!”
The manager, 64, also revealed where he’d be spending the first few months of the new year: “I’ll go to Miami for the whole month of January. I go there three months of the year. I have an apartment and I just love it, it’s the best place in the world.”
