Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Louis Smith gets mistaken for Louis Walsh!

Louis Smith (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Louis Smith has been complaining about getting mistaken for Louis Walsh!

The 23-year-old Olympian has apparently been getting autograph requests from X Factor fans thinking he's 60-year-old Irish music manager Louis Walsh.

He tweeted his fans yesterday: "hey um are you Louis Walsh?!" excuse me !!"sorry! Are you Louis Walsh?! No!! I'm not!! He's a judge off X-factor..."

Confusion like that is sure to annoy Louis, but not as much as girls, it seems.

Speaking to Star magazine this week, Louis reveled he's only ever had one girlfriend because he finds women "f***ing complicated".

She said: "I’ve had one girlfriend. But I try not to get involved with women, because they’re f***ing complicated."

However Louis added that he was looking for love.

“I’m not sure whether it’s better to find someone in the industry or someone under the radar," he said. “What I really like is when I finally get a day off and I just want to wake up with my girlfriend.

“Get the kettle on, chill on the sofa and watch movies, no make-up, not trying ti impress. Just chilling.”
