Brian McFadden has hit back at his former bandmate Kian Egan after the radio presenter said his new venture Boyzlife was “unfair to the fans”.
Speaking on last night’s Late Late Show, McFadden said that maths wasn’t Egan’s strong suit after his former bandmate criticised Boyzlife, a new group made up of Mcfadden and former Boyzone star Keith Duffy.
Speaking earlier in the week Egan said: “I was scratching my head when I first saw it.
“It’s a bit of an odd one – a member of Westlife who left the band after four years decides to use half the name for whatever it is that they’re doing.”
However, McFadden defended the new group which will see the pair tour around the UK and Ireland.
“I was actually in Westlife for more than four years but maths was never Kian’s thing in fairness.
McFadden’s new partner is music Keith Duffy suggested that Egan had his claws out, after making the scathing comments about Boyzlife.
“At the end of the day myself and Brian are after teaming up to do a show and talk about 20 years in the business,” he said
“All the performances we do will be in a Hilton Hotel all across the UK and Ireland.”
“A saucer of milk for Kian please.”
Speaking on 98fm this week, Egan revealed that Boyzlife is doing an injustice to fans.
"From the perspective of someone who spent 15 years in Westlife it was really aggravating.
"It was really unfair on the fans that everybody thought that this was what’s happening, you know that Westlife and Boyzone were getting together to do a tour.
"Personally speaking, I thought it's not the right way to do it and I think it was pretty unfair on the fans,” he said.
