Seems the trouble brewed when Louis gave grief about Pete’s discovery of Steps, while Pete returned the jabs on Louis being the brainchild of Westlife.
“It was brewing all day as Louis kept having digs at Pete about Steps,” revealed an insider. “He was constantly telling him how annoying they were and how he was holding him personally responsible for their ‘dire music’. Pete kept calm until filming stopped. Then he raged: ‘Westlife? Don’t make me laugh, they’re a joke. All they can sing are ballads. At least Steps could bloody dance!'” Fortunately the former Spice Girl kept the two from going to blows on two occasions.
