The pair’s turbulent relationship came crashing down in October last year when Kerry kicked the 36-year-old out following claims he’d assaulted her, leaving her battered and bruised following a drinking session.

In what might sound like the ultimate put-down, former Westlife star, Brian McFadden, has told Zayn Malik that he should quit the music industry for good.

Oh blimey, it’s all kicking off for those blokes from Westlife, as former bandmates Kian Egan and Brian McFadden are now in the midst of a fully-fledged war or words. Brian has had a pop at former Westlife pal Kian, after the 2013 King of the Jungle trashed Brian for going on a tour this year to talk about Westlife - which he’d quit just four years in. For those of you not in the know, Brian and former Boyzone star Keith Duffy are touring the UK and Ireland later this year in something called ‘Boyzlife’ – where they’ll be chatting about their time in the band and presumably singing a few of their hits.

When it was announced earlier this year that One Direction were taking a well-earned break after five years of being the biggest boyband on the planet, it didn’t take long for the ‘split’ rumours to start. Ignoring the fact that 1D have been working their little bums off solidly for half a decade, many decided that them taking 2016 off spelled the end for the band that we know, love, and obsess over. In case you didn’t know, Markus was a member of hugely successful boyband, Westlife, and after working hard for eleven years - losing a member along the way - the band demanded a break against the advice of their management.
Markus Feehily has been in the fame game longer than most celebs these days, with the Irish star first hitting the spotlight with his band Westlife back in 1998. When Westlife split back in 2012, despite us being utterly heartbroken to no longer have the band in our life, we were excited to see what each member will be doing individually - and three years later Markus is fi-na-lly back with his debut solo album, ‘Fire’. “Westlife had an album out every single year and we had a tour out every year so it was just bang, bang, bang constantly.
Brian McFadden has become the latest celebrity to cast their opinion on the new look X Factor - and it doesn’t sound like he’s a fan. If there’s anyone out there who HASN’T yet shared their thoughts on this year’s stages, please make yourself known to Simon Cowell, please. While we reckon Caroline Flack and Olly Murs have stepped into Dermot O’Leary’s shoes effortlessly, and Nick Grimshaw has been doing a grand job in Louis Walsh’s seat, former Westlife singer Brian isn’t quite so keen on the changes.
Back in July, Vogue Williams and Brian McFadden added their names to the long ol’ list of celebrity couples who have split in the doomed year of 2015, leaving us to wonder if the concept of love was legit just an illusion. Calling time on their relationship after three years of marriage, the former lovebirds insisted that they had simply “grown apart”, with 29-year-old Vogue even recently saying that she and the former Westlife star will be “friends for life”. In fact, we can exclusively reveal that Vogue and Brian spent the majority of the night with one another, even sneaking out of the event for a breather together with Vogue linking her arm with Brian’s.
It’s always going to be pretty awkward bumping into your old boss at the best of times let alone on holiday however, we were still pretty shocked to hear that Simon Cowell apparently blanked former Westlife star Mark Feehily in Barbados. According to Mark, who now inexplicably goes by the name of Markus, Simon just stared straight through him when they crossed paths on their jollies.
