X Factor star Louis Walsh is all stitched up, after accidentally walking through a glass door.

The TV judge had to get twelve stitches across his forehead after he walked into the glass door on a recent trip away.

This was according to his friend, TV3’s Celebrity Apprentice boss, Caroline Downey. 

She revealed the incident on the Ray Darcy Show this morning, and said that it happened when Walsh was house hunting in Miami.

“He already owns an apartment over there, but was looking for another one,” she explained.

“The glass was so clean in one of the houses that he didn’t see the door, and just walked straight through it,” she said.

The music mogul and X Factor star is said to be recovering very well, and according to Caroline, was due to have his stitches removed at some stage today.    

Louis is back on our screens now with the tenth series of X Factor.

The auditions stage are due to end this weekend with the bootcamp phase broadcast next week.

The live shows are set to begin next month.

This year, Irish hopes rest on Dublin woman Melanie McCabe (20) who is tipped to progress to the live rounds.

This is Melanie’s fourth attempt on X Factor – and Louis Walsh is supporting her all the way.
