Man charged over Louis Walsh false grope claims

A 24-year-old man has been charged with falsely accusing X-Factor judge Louis Walsh of groping him in a nightclub.

Leonard Watters appeared in court over unfounded allegations that the pop music mogul had indecently assaulted him on a night out in Krystle in Dublin.

Watters, who was granted bail on condition he does not contact Walsh or anyone from the Westlife band, is charged with making a false report to gardai.

He appeared at a brief sitting of the Dublin District Court.

Walsh has described the investigation over the last week as hugely distressing.
