Louis Walsh enjoys his time on Britain’s Got Talent

All the society lovelies were out in force for the exclusive spring/summer fashion show at upmarket store Harvey Nichols.

There was no shortage of inspiration when it came to the hottest looks for the coming seasons, given the blur of designer labels featured in the fashion show. And this wasn't any ordinary catwalk extravaganza, given that Irish artist Helen Steele painted the runway especially for the event, creating a quirky backdrop for the show. Among those on the guest list were Miriam O'Callaghan, alongside Sinead Desmond, Victoria Smurfit and Doug Baxter. Also spotted was Leigh Arnold, as well as designer Joanne Hynes and Margaret Nelson.

Proceedings kicked off with a drinks reception before attendees sat down to watch all our top models strutting their stuff on the runway.



  • Given that Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching, the Body Shop has just announced details of its unique competition that it is running in the Dundrum Town Centre tomorrow. To mark the launch of its new Love Etc fragrance collection, they're calling on all eager participants to take part in their photo booth contest and capture their own signature photograph.

The resulting images will then be posted in the store's Facebook page so you can check out the winning shots.

Whoever comes first will receive a dinner for two people in Roly's Bistro in Dundrum to the value of €200 alongside a basket of goodies from the shop to the value of €300, with the contest being judged on February 14.



  • X Factor judge Louis Walsh obviously enjoyed his stint on Britain's Got Talent, judging by his Twitter post.

The Westlife manager was drafted onto the hit show at the last minute after Simon Cowell fell ill with the flu, meaning that producers flew Louis over to judge two rounds of auditions in Birmingham.

And he clearly enjoyed stirring things up a little, after sitting on the panel with Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan. "I know Simon will blame me for putting some acts through on Bgt!" he revealed.

Meanwhile, Amanda Holden has described Louis' stint on the show as being like having a "supply teacher" on the programme.

"It feels like the teacher is off. I feel I can mess about a bit more today. We have got Louis in as a supply teacher so we can put some acts through who wouldn't make it if Simon was here. I am missing him though," she said.
