X Factor 2016 auditions hit Ireland and Louis Walsh is LOVING it

The X Factor 2016 auditions move to Ireland this weekend and Louis Walsh is in his element.

In a new preview clip from this weekend's auditions, Louis is seen driving around Dublin in his very own double decker bus.

"Hello Dublin, I'm back!" shouts Louis over a megaphone as the bus, plastered with a giant picture of his face, moves around town.

"This is all for me, I can't believe this," says Louis as he arrives at the auditions to find a special 'Green' carpet, lined with Irish dancers.

And even dancing Dermot makes a rare appearance outside of the live shows, performing a little jig.

But clearly unhappy with the attention off him, Simon Cowell remarks: "I actually feel physically sick."

Louis quips "Do you not have a bus?"

Once Louis settles down, auditions begin and one of the hopefuls singing this weekend is Louis Tomlinson lookalike Matt Terry, who surprises the judges with his performance.

23-year-old Matt reveals to the judges how he was a waiter but had to quit his job after a nasty break up.

"Music is my passion, it's the dream come true, it's what I'm here for," he explains.

Nicole quips: "Well I hope you don't suck 'cause I like you already."

The X Factor 2016 auditions air Saturday night from 8:15PM and return Sunday at 8PM.

And don't forget all new Xtra Factor LIVE which airs straight after on ITV2, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson.
