Irish pop hunks Westlife have been ordered to quit drinking by manager LOUIS WALSH - because he doesn't want them to put on weight before a video shoot.

The chubby COAST TO COAST group are on a strict fitness regime in the run-up to filming.

A source says, "The poor boys seem to be half-starved all the time. The management told them to stay off the booze.

"It's quite strict and they've not touched a single drop all week. In the morning, the fried breakfasts are off the menu altogether.

"At night, it's mineral water and no peanuts."
