Louis Walsh to host BBC Radio 2 show

BBC Radio 2 has attracted X Factor judge Louis Walsh to join the Christmas schedule with a one-off programme on Boxing Day.

The Irish music manager will spend two and a half hours picking his favourite songs and singers.

The pre-recorded show will air from 9:30am till 12pm on December 26th and The Sun newspaper says his choices are expected to include Westlife, Boyzone and Etta James.

A pal told the newspaper: “Louis is thrilled. He’s a real music fan and this is really up his street. He loves Etta James and there might be a bit of Westlife too.

“But it’s unlikely he’ll play anything from any X Factor stars like Cher Lloyd.”
