I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Amazing news everyone, Nicky is working on a solo album!
Nicky Byrne: Me have another child? You’ve got to be kidding…
Westlife star Nicky Byrne has got his hands full
He’s just become a dad for the third time and Nicky Byrne has admitted he and wife Georgina Ahern are not having any more children.
The former Westlife singer, 35, said he wants to focus on his career and is on track to become the Irish Robbie Williams.
Hot on the heels of ex-bandmate Shane Filan, the star has near completed his first solo album.
Nicky said: “I’ve four tracks recorded and seven written.
““I’ve been reluctant to talk about it but it’s happening. I’ve been really enjoying the process as there hasn’t been people on my back about deadlines.”
Like Shane, Nicky has employed Wayne Hector who wrote almost 30 of Westlife’s hits, contributing to seven No1s, including World Of Our Own and Flying Without Wings.
The singer said: “I’ve been working on it for the last four months and I’m really delighted with the stuff we’ve done so far.
“It’s fun, a bit cheeky chappy, quirky. A bit of craic really. In saying that I’m very serious about it, it’s great quality.
“I’m definitely working with the right people for me. I haven’t signed to a label or anything like that yet I’m just happy to see the album being made.”
Chatting on the phone yesterday while waiting to pick up six-year-old twin sons Rocco and Jay from school, Nicky said he’s been run off his feet since Westlife split just over two years ago after 14 years together.
And now the proud father of three after the birth of baby Gia last month.
He gushed: “I’m doing the school run as Georgina can’t drive for another week or so. She’s a dream baby, a brilliant little girl.
“She’s really calm and I’m totally smitten.”
But the star said he has done his bit for humanity and will not be having any more kids. He laughed: “We feel incredibly lucky with the three we have so that’s us definitely done now.”
The doting dad said he’s been keeping an eye on his father-in-law, former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern since a man tried to attack him with a crutch in a Dublin pub last week.
He added: “I talk to Bertie all the time. He’s fine. It’s just one of those things.”
Nicky, who took part in Strictly Come Dancing last year, will be back on stage next week to host the Cheerios Childline Concert 2013.
He said: “It’ll be funny to be there as Shane is performing but I’ll be supporting him from the sidelines.”
And while Shane and Nicky share the O2 stage on Wednesday, albeit in different capacities, Kian Egan will be sweating it out in the jungle on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity.
“I think Kian has a great chance of winning. I know if I was stuck in the jungle I’d want him on my team.
“He’s up for a challenge and he would just suck it up and get on with tasks especially if it means the rest of the gang will get dinner. It’s the perfect show for him really, he’s very adventurous.”
So the rumors were true in the end everyone… Kian is joining ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here‘, it’s been confirmed by the man himself. BEST LUCK in the jungle, Kian! Backing him all the way, yuuup!
Kian Egan joined I’m A Celeb after Ant and Dec pestered him at party
WESTLIFE hunk Kian Egan says he signed up for I’m A Celebrity because hosts Ant and Dec egged him into having a go at their jungle show.

The Irish boyband star jetted into Australia last night and became the second celebrity to arrive ahead of the series launch on Sunday.
Kian, 33, said: “I’ve known Ant and Dec for 15 years. They asked me about doing the show at a party in the summer and I said to them, ‘Oh, I don’t know, guys. We’ll see.’
“They kept saying to me, ‘Do it, do it, do it.’ They were jeering me on. Obviously, they know I’m doing the show now.”
Kian continued: “I’ve always watched the show from day dot, so I’ve always felt like it’s a show I’d probably get involved with.
“I’m an adventurous guy and I like all that kind of stuff, so I can’t wait to get involved. Watching the show, I always thought, ‘I fancy that.’”
Kian admitted he wasn’t worried about spiders and snakes, but is more concerned about having to survive on a diet of rice and beans if the campers failed to win the trials.
He added: “The lack of food is my biggest worry.”
The dad-of-one explained: “But I’m a good camper. I’m a surfer and surfing takes you to random places all over the world, so from that perspective, I’ve done a lot of camping in random places.
“I’ve been in random countries, so I’ve experienced Bali belly loads of times. I’m an experienced guy in that respect, but I’m not sure if anything can prepare you for what I’m about to do.
“I am excited and nervous. I am also worried about who I will be in the camp with.
“It would be nice if there was somebody around my own age group in there just to bounce off and have a bit of fun with.”
The singer said his wife and Hollyoaks babe Jodi Albert, 30, and two-year-old son Koa would be flying out to support him later.
On Friday, Jodi tweeted: “Squeezing my @KianEganWL don’t wanna let go”, later adding: “I love you baby @KianEganWL you always make me proud xxxx.”
He also has the backing of his old bandmates in Westlife.
More stars are expected to land Down Under today.
The day is nearly here everyone! Shane’s debut solo album “You And Me” was released on Friday in Ireland and is released tomorrow worldwide. Make sure you will buy your own copy and enjoy what Shane has been working on since Westlife took their separate ways. GOOD LUCK SHANE!!

Westlife singer Kian Egan ‘signs £100,000 deal to appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’
By SARAH BULL
Former Westlife singer Kian Egan has reportedly signed a deal worth £100,000 to appear on this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The 33-year-old star is set to join a host of familiar faces when the new series of the highly-anticipated programme kicks off on November 17th, according to The Sun.
A source told the newspaper: ‘Kian’s a game lad and is well up for the jungle madness. He knows it won’t be easy, but he’s often said he would love a go at those Bushtucker Trials.’
Kian has been focusing on a television career following Westlife’s split in 2012.
Since then, he has presented several segments on This Morning, and co-hosts ITV revamped show Surprise Surprise alongside Holly Willoughby.
Kian is married to former Hollyoaks actress Jodi Albert, and the pair are parents to son Koa, who turns two this December.
Other stars reportedly set to join Kian in the jungle include TOWIE star Joey Essex, Emmerdale actress Lucy Pargeter and stunning Miss Universe hopeful Amy Willerton – who previously won Katie Price’s television model search competition.
Strictly pro dancer Vincent Simone, snooker player Steve Davis and presenter Matthew Wright are also thought to be heading Down Under for the show.
It remains to be seen just what is in store for the contestants on this year’s series, but viewers are sure to be hopeful for more Helen Flanagan-style tantrums and tears.
N’aww MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS to Georgina, Nicky and all the Byrne family on the arrival of baby girl Gia! <3 Nicky announced the amazing news of Gia's birth earlier today through his Twitter page.
