Westlife’s Brian McFadden and Boyzone’s Keith Duffy have formed their own supergroup called Boyzlife which is the most genius name ever if we’re honest.

At the moment it’s just Brian and Keith in the band – but Brian’s hinted that the other boys could be joining them at some point later down the line.

Well, it’d be rude not to.

Brian told Hello!: “Who knows, next year you might have Kian and Shane doing it together or Mikey and Mark, there’s kind of an open idea for anyone who wants to do it.

“Because we’re from two different bands people want to know if anyone else will join. But this year is about me and Keith, and if anyone else wants to get involved further down the line we’ll surely talk about it, but right now it’s just us two.”

Keith confirmed that the rest of Boyzone and Westlife are “very supportive” about the whole supergroup idea.

Corrie star Keith then explained how he came up with the idea that he and Brian should join up to do shows together in the first place – after going out and getting drunk together.

He said: “An idea was born and the next day with our hangovers we decided, ‘You know what, we come up with an awful lot of ideas when we’re drunk, we’ve just remembered one for the first time.’”

Boyzone’s Keith Duffy and former Westlife singer Brian McFadden will embark on a UK tour later this year, kicking off in October. The tour will consist of 12 dates in total, with tickets on sale from 9am on March 8.


In a press release, Duffy says of the news: “Brian and I have been talking about this for a while so it’s really exciting to finally be able to reveal Boyzlife. We can’t wait to get out on the road and reconnect with our fans, taking a trip down memory lane.”

McFadden added: “Keith and I have always been great friends and we’ve wanted to work together for quite a while now. With the amount of stories between us we knew it would make for a great live show, mixed in with a few songs!”

McFadden also hinted to The Sun that the other members of the two acts might be open to joining the supergroup. He said: “We all had a chat [at Ronan Keating’s wedding last year], the lads. We said it would be amazing. Not even just performing together, but can you imagine the craic?”

“Nine of us Irish lads on a tour bus together, going round the world together. It would be absolutely carnage. We all get on so well so you never know. We could end up adding more people to the next one. Right now this is about me and Keith but the door is always open.”

Brian McFadden originally left Westlife in 2004, with the remaining members continuing as a fourpiece until 2012.

Keith Duffy, meanwhile, served as a member of Boyzone from 1993–2000, before reuniting with the group when they reformed in 2008.

Brian McFadden has been eliminated from The Jump .

The singer – who shot to fame in boyband Westlife – was knocked out of the Channel 4 competition after being beaten in jumping height and distance by the other contestants.

Retired rugby player Ben Cohen , ultra posh Tamara Beckwith, boybander Tom Parker and former Superman actor Dean Cain all took on the main jump and landed whopping lengths.

But Brian opted for the air jump and could only muster 9m, meaning he gets to go home from the injury hit show.

Brian McFadden has asked Nicky Byrne to make up for his failures – when he competes in the Eurovision this May.

The former Westlife star previously attempted to get a track into the Eurovision when he penned the song If My World Stopped Turning.

The track was entered into the Eurovision in 2004 with Chris Doran singing the tune, but Ireland came in 22nd place that year. Taking to Twitter to wish Nicky better luck than he had, Brian asked Nicky to do a better job than him.

This week Nicky revealed that as well as signing up for the Eurovision, he also landed a record deal with Universal Music.

Channel 4 has now confirmed that singer McFadden is one of the big-name stars who has agreed to take to the piste for the programme.

Filmed in Austria, it will be broadcast live every night on Channel 4 and will see Brian battling it out against a number of other celebrities.

Irish singer-songwriter Brian McFadden has posed with his pooch Winston for PETA’s latest anti-fur campaign.

“You wouldn’t wear your dog. Please don’t wear any fur,” reads the anti fur farming poster for animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

“Proud to be supporting @PETAUK,” tweeted McFadden with the campaign photo of himself holding his pup.

Other celebrities who have called for a ban on fur farming include American actress Anjelica Huston and Irish actor Cillian Murphy.

“Fur farms are hell on Earth for animals,” said Jason Baker, PETA’s Australian Director of Campaigns.

“Animals dont need to be electrocuted, have their heads bashed in, or even be skinned alive for the sake of coats and collars.

Kerry Katona has admitted it took a “‘long time” to develop a friendship with ex-husband Brian McFadden.

The Atomic Kitten star wed former Westlife singer Brian in 2002 and the couple had two daughters together, Molly and Lilly Sue, before separating in 2004. Their divorce was finalised in 2006.

Speaking on ITV’s Loose Women today, Kerry said: “It took a long time for me and Brian to become friends. There was a lot of hurt and hatred, especially on my part.”

She said now Brian can come round to her house to see the girls and they can exchange texts, but added: “It’s not like we are best friends.”

Kerry was on the show to give her first TV interview since splitting from third husband, George Kay, in October. They have daughter Dylan-Jorge together. Kerry is also mum to daughter Heidi and son Max from her marriage to Mark Croft.

She told the panel she’d been open with her eldest children, Molly and Lilly, about the separation from George.

“We spoke everything through. They are both highly intelligent girls. I actually do question whether I’m their mum! They have been absolutely amazing. They are just really great kids, as are Max and Heidi. Happy kids who go to school and play outside.”

Kerry also credited close friend Katie Price for helping her through this tough time, saying: “Me and Kate have been friends for a very long time and obviously she texts me.”

The former Westlife singer revealed he’s working on his fifth studio album following the release of his 2012 record ‘The Irish Connection’.

He made the announcement while performing at Bush Hall in London on Tuesday (03.11.15), where he premiered a handful of new songs from the as-yet untitled collection.

During the intimate show he joked around with the crowd by telling anecdotes about his life such as his struggle to give up smoking and joking about how he uses gay dating app Grindr causing plenty of laughs among the crowd.

And as well as playing tracks from his previous albums, the 35-year-old star returned to classic Westlife tracks, despite their split in 2012.

The 15-track set was complete with an encore featuring two of the band’s biggest hits, ‘Uptown Girl’ and ‘Flying Without Wings, the latter of which he dedicated to the crowd.

Before kicking off the hit single, he said: ”I want to dedicate this to the most important people in the room which is all of you who are here tonight.

”You’ve been here since I started in Westlife, since when I left Westlife, the stuff I’ve done wrong, and all the s**t I’ve done. You’ve all been standing there. So this one’s for you.”

Following her split from George Kay, Kerry Katona’s ex-husband Brian McFadden has made it clear he’s standing by her.

Brian and Kerry, both 35, were married from 2002-2004 and share two daughters, Molly, 14, and 12-year-old Lilly-Sue – but the former Westlife singer has insisted he’ll look after all five of her children if she needs a break.

Speaking to Closer, Brian said: “I called her as soon as it all came out about the split. I’ve been taking our daughters out to give her a break and offered to take her other kids for a bit too. She’s obviously upset but she’s getting on with it.”

Earlier this year Brian took to Twitter to wish former rugby player George, also 35, a happy Father’s Day, thanking him for ‘keeping their family’ together.

Despite the sudden turn of events, Brian, who recently split from wife Vogue Williams, isn’t taking sides.

He continued: “I haven’t spoken to George about the split and I don’t know the ins and outs. I know that Kerry’s very upset and she’s the mother of my children so that’s all I’ve got to go on.”

Last week Kerry confirmed her third marriage was over after just 13 months, following reports that George was arrested for attacking her and possessing a taser.

A spokesperson for the Atomic Kitten singer said: “It is with deep sadness that Kerry announces the end of her marriage to George Kay. Her focus now will be on her gorgeous children.”
