Louis Walsh set to take on the banker
X Factor star, Louis Walsh, was accompanied by 22 friends and family as he jetted to the UK to shoot a celebrity version of Channel 4's Deal or No Deal.

The tycoon was accompanied by stars such as Jedward, TV3's Glenda Gilson, singer Sinitta, Boyzone star Keith Duffy and former X Factor presenter, Kate Thornton.

Louis' sisters Evelyn and Sarah, promoter Caroline Desmond and Jedward's tour manager Liam McKenna were also part of the group who jetted to Bristol in the UK yesterday for the show hosted by Noel Edmonds.

Walsh is shooting one of eight celebrity programmes for the channel with comedian Jimmy Carr and X Factor star Olly Murs also starring on the show.

Walsh is believed to be donating any winnings from the show's Banker to Childline.

Deal or No Deal, hosted by Noel Edmonds, has been a huge hit for Channel 4.

The format is a simple game of chance and nerve featuring a single contestant trying to beat the Banker.

Celebrity Deal or No Deal made its debut on Easter Sunday with 2 million viewers.
