BRIAN McFadden and Keith Duffy joked they created their Boyzlife duo because they were BROKE – and Brian had too many ex wives to pay for.
The cheeky Irish pair, who were previously adored by fans of separate groups Boyzone and Westlife, made their revelation on today’s Good Morning Britain.
When asked why they created the man band by hosts Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan, former Boyzone star Keith said: “We were broke!
“Brian has too many wives.”
His quip about Brian’s former spouses Kerry Katona and Vogue Williams didn’t seem to offend the Westlife singer.
He was quick to set the record straight and said: “We got offered to do books all the time but we never wanted to do it.
“When Keith tells a story he talks it out and we wanted to do a show talking of our story and acting it out.”
He added: “We have quite similar lives as well.”
They joined forces for their new project earlier this year, sharing stories from their time on the road as well as singing some of their respective band’s biggest hits, including No Matter What and Flying Without Wings.
Today Piers grilled them as to how they chose the name Boyzlife – instead of plumping for Westzone.
Brian laughed and said: “It’s because Westzone is a car park outside Dublin Airport.
“It’s also something you use to clean your toilet,” to which Keith replied: “That’s Paragon!”
