BRITAIN’s Got Talent guest judge Louis Walsh was left seething after Michael McIntyre gave him advice on how to manage Westlife.
Irish pop guru Louis Walsh, who has guided the boyband to 14 No 1 singles, was astonished when comic Michael McIntyre told him his lads needed to change their style.

The pair fell out when Louis joined Michael and fellow judge Amanda Holden on the Britain’s Got Talent panel as a temporary replacement for US actor David Hasselhoff, 58.

Michael, 34, told Louis at one of the London BGT auditions: “Westlife, they are a bit serious aren’t they? Are they that emotional?
“Why don’t you do an up-tempo number with them?
“Sometimes you’ve got to take a risk, Louis.”

Walsh, 58, who has managed Westlife for 13 years, snapped back: “We have done up-tempo numbers and taken risks.
“But ballads work.”

And last night Louis blasted: “I don’t think Westlife need Michael’s help. But if he’s going into the pop business, I’ll get out my joke book and become a comedian.”

The pair, along with Amanda, 40, will be seen on tonight’s ITV1 show passing verdicts on the latest batch of wannabes.
They include a 12-year-old lad called Ronan who wows the panel singing Michael Bublé’s Feeling Good.

There’s also a 50-year-old artist called Anthony who paints with his pants, double act Darth Dongle And The Princess doing a Jacko dance, and the Underground Dance Company who dress up as Edward Scissorhands.

Other acts include a Taekwondo trio called TKD Remix and a seven-year-old girl called Olivia who reads poetry with a snake wrapped around her neck.
