Video: It all kicks off on The Late Late Show as Linda Martin confronts Aslan guitarist Billy McGuinness

Don't mess with Linda, seemingly.

It might be a while before we see Aslan guitarist Billy McGuinness back on the Late Late Show.

During Friday night’s Eurosong competition Louis Walsh, sitting on the judging panel, came under attack from McGuinness who said that the pop mogul should no longer be involved in the selection process for the Eurovision Song Contest.

McGuinness wasn’t happy that Walsh had formerly mentored contestants Eoghan Quigg and Kasey Smith, and said that it was “not a level playing field.”

Step forward Louis’s bodyguard Linda, who called McGuinness an ‘odious little man’ before getting up off her seat and eyeballing McGuinness in the front row of the audience, like a mammy whose little boy has just been taken out of it by the school bully in a schoolboy football match.

Ryan Tubridy, meanwhile, failed to produce a red card.
