MY SIDE OF LIFE - AUTOBIOGRAPHY [ADDED CHAPTER]: AMAZON
29 December 2012: JUNE saw the end of the country’s most successful ever boyband — after 14 years at the top.
Shane, Nicky, Kian and Mark made the heartbreaking decision to call it a day, having spent nearly half their lives on stage together.
After 50million record sales worldwide, and earning an estimated €10million each, the four lads hung up their Westlife barstools and went their separate ways.
Showbiz Editor JENNIFER O’BRIEN checks out what they have been up to since.
KIAN has managed to carve out a massively successful television career in the months since the end of the band.
The 32-year-old father of one juggles his work as a judge on The Voice of Ireland with presenting stints in the UK.
This year saw him land roles on The Xtra Factor, ITV’s This Morning and as a roving reporter on Surprise Surprise.
While he is keeping his music on the back burner, Kian has previously expressed an interest in pursuing band management in the coming years.
Kian divides his time between his mansion in Strandhill, Co Sligo, and a luxury townhouse in the UK.
His son Koa recently celebrated his first birthday and beautiful wife Jodi Albert has previously stated she would like more mini-Kians running around the house.
SLIGO lad Shane has been living in London with gorgeous wife Gillian and working on his solo material for the past six months.
After a battle between record companies, Shane, 33, eventually signed with London Records and has been in the studio recording tracks.
His debut solo album is due for release next year and Shane will continue to be managed by Louis Walsh.
Last week, Shane took to Twitter to rubbish talk that he will represent Ireland at next year’s Eurovision finals.
SONGWRITER Mark has landed on his feet after signing with the manager of legendary Beatle Paul McCartney.
However, 2012 was up-and-down for him after he split with fiancé Kevin McDaid at the beginning of the year.
But the popular Sligo lad is bouncing back from the break-up and focusing on his music career.
Kind-hearted Mark, 32, has backed the Irish Sun’s Delete Cyber Bullies drive and also campaigns with Childline.
The star lives in London but also still has a home in Sligo which he regularly visits.
Mark has admitted: “Next year is going to be really exciting — I have spent a lot of time in the studio and I can’t wait.”
THE only Dubliner of the band hit the ground running with a stint on Strictly Come Dancing this autumn, Nicky has also completed a number of TV projects for RTE including Football’s Next Star and an upcoming stint on School Around The Corner.
He lives in Malahide with wife Georgina and sons Rocco and Jay and has revealed hopes to pursue a career in radio or television.
Last month, Nicky, 34, revealed that he would also like to delve into the world of musical theatre or film.
He said: “Acting is definitely something I’d consider.
“I did an acting course in New York about five years ago and I made a decision that one day I’d go to the States and try to get an agent.”
