“I know what I’m good at, and it’s not dancing. I’m not doing it. I’m not in the fame game.”

However, Louis revealed that he has been asked to participate in I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here a number of times.

The music manager told the publication that he was proud of Westlife’s latest anti-bullying song, My Blood.


“We were all bullied. We were all bullied in school. Everyone was bullied in some way,” he explained.

“We all were, it is part of growing up in Ireland, I think it is everywhere, but it is all in different forms.”

“The video is amazing and the song is really good. It has a great message.”
