Louis Walsh showed off his incredible weight loss as he promoted the Celebrity X Factor final this Saturday in an Instagram video for the show.

The veteran TV judge, 67, seems to have seriously slimmed down this winter with the new footage showing a clearly trimmer figure compared to snaps from previous years.

Louis announced in the short video: "Don't forget the X Factor final is this Saurday. You can see it on ITV and STV. Don't forget!"

During a TV appearance earlier this week with his X Factor finalist Megan McKenna , Lorraine Kelly teased Louis about his weight loss.

Lorraine, 59, complimented the Irish music business veteran and asked if he'd had any cosmetic surgery.

She said: "Can I just say you're looking really well Louis? Have you had any work done?"

The X Factor judge and Westlife manager laughed, before insisting: "I haven't had any help in a really long time."

Finalist Megan, 27, then teased: "He did have a spray tan done in Essex though!"

Lorraine continued to probe into Louis' secret weight loss journey as she questioned the Irish TV star.

She added: "You've lost tonnes of weight and you look really really young. it's ridiculous!"

Without giving away his secrets, Louis said his weight loss was down to "loving what I do" and revealed that "the music business keeps me young."

The Irish music mogul may have taken some tips from his TV boss Simon Cowell after his own highly-publicised weight loss journey.

Simon, 60, famously lost more than 20lb in weight and the TV talent judge put it down to him turning to a vegan diet.

Simon changed his lifestyle in October 2017 after he fell down the stairs in the middle of night.

The health scare forced him to change his ways and he has been living a healthier lifestyle ever since.
