Louis Tomlinson’s new gig as an “X Factor” judge has already hit a snag. The Sun reports that during an audition a contestant confused the One Directioner for fellow UK singer Olly Murs and Louis didn’t take the mixup very well.

Pals Niall Horan and Olly Murs cuddled up on the couch for a good cause Friday night. The singers came together for a special celebrity edition of the UK’s “Gogglebox” series in partnership with the Stand Up To Cancer charity. The segment asks guests to add witty banter while watching television highlights. Niall and Olly offered up their best commentary as they sifted through popular UK reality shows like “Married at First Sight,” which is exactly what you think it is.
“It’s like going on a Tinder date and getting married at the end of the night,” Niall says. “My parents wouldn’t let this happen in the first place.” Olly jokes about what would happen if the show’s female contestant got home with her near-stranger husband and noticed that all wasn’t what she had hoped down south. “Don’t want to say what I’m thinking,” Niall begins. “But he’s six foot three and it’s probably down to his knee.”
Olly also takes Niall down One Direction memory lane and teases him about being the “member that no one really knew much about.” He compares it to Backstreet Boys, which Niall seems to appreciate with a laugh. “Like Nick Carter, just like that,” Olly says.

Niall Horan is scheduled to get cozy on the couch with singer Olly Murs in an upcoming star-studded “Gogglebox” special. The UK series will feature Niall a handful of stars that will discuss TV highlights as they try to raise money and awareness for the Stand Up To Cancer charity.
Singer Olly Murs yesterday visited Australian radio show “Hamish and Andy” and performed a live studio cover of One Direction’s “Drag Me Down.” The hosts cracked some jokes about the cover being Olly’s audition to fill the space that Zayn Malik’s departure had left in the band.
