Keith Duffy suffers ‘swollen testicle’ after eager fan grabs him at Boyzlife concert: ‘She grabbed anything she could’
Keith Duffy sustained an unusual injury when an eager fan grabbed him in a particularly sensitive place during a performance on his Boyzlife tour in Leeds.
Duffy’s bandmate Brian McFadden opened up about the incident which saw the former Boyzone star leave the stage with a swollen testicle after a fan became particularly handsy.
Speaking to The Sun, McFadden said: “This woman went to grab Keith by the neck but slipped and ended up grabbing anything she could. I know Keith got a swollen testicle from it. Did it hurt? Of course it hurt. Have you ever had your balls squeezed?”
Meanwhile, the pair recently took a break to go on a double date with their partners in Dublin on Friday.
Walking hand-in-hand with his new love Danielle Parkinson, McFadden went for dinner in Wishbone restaurant on Montague Street with Duffy and his wife Lisa.
The former Westlife star’s ex-wife, presenter Vogue Williams, recently wished him well in his new relationship with Parkinson, who works as a PE teacher in Manchester and represented Britain in the heptathlon.
“I heard that he was seeing someone and I’m genuinely delighted for him, I really am. We’re still on really good terms and I wish him all the best,” she said.
This is his first serious relationship since splitting from his Howth-born model ex-wife. The pair were married for three years before deciding to call it quits in the summer of 2015, but have managed to remain on good terms and even spent last Christmas together.
McFadden recently went public with his romance with British athlete Danielle, after confirming he was off the market on ITV's Loose Women last week.
Speaking to The Irish Sun earlier this week McFadden said: “I didn’t meet Danielle online. We were introduced through mutual friends at a social function in Manchester, we ended getting on so well, we took it from there.
“Danielle is lovely and it’s great to have someone special in your life. She makes me really happy.”
