‘We argued like hell’ – Nicky Byrne reveals the fights of Westlife’s final days
Former Westlife star Nicky Byrne has revealed that the latter years of Westlife saw plenty of in-house fighting. Although he has no regrets about the 14 years he spent with the band, according to the RTE Guide, the time had come for them all to move on.
He said: “We’d done it all, we’d the best of times and the worst of times. Battered each other – obviously not physically – but argued like hell.
“Probably more so in the latter years but that’s part of relationships, isn’t it? We had a laugh. We earned a few quid. We weren’t unique, but what was unique was that we lasted so long. I don’t know how we did it.”
The 33-year-old is set to appear on the new series of Strictly Come Dancing and will also host the new RTE show, Football’s Next Star, where ten young Irish players will fight for a place at Glasgow Celtic Youth Academy.
Speaking to the RTE Guide, Nicky also spoke about his wife, Georgina who he described as “one in a million.”
He said: “I fancied G from day one and she fancied me. We understand each other, we trust each other and we’re blessed so far with two kids. It’s great and it works.”
