Brian - or Bryan as he styled himself back then - married the Atomic Kitten singer in Rathfeigh, Co Meath in 2002 and then headed to Slane Castle for the reception, where guests included his Westlife bandmates, Ronan Keating and Dane Bowers. The bride spent 20,000 on her dress but the fairytale didn't last. They separated two years later and it emerged that he had cheated on his wife-to-be with a lapdancer on his stag night.

Brian McFadden has revealed he tried to dissuade his daughter from pursuing a career in pop music.

The former Westlife singer has two daughters, Molly (13) and Lily Sue (12), with ex-wife and fellow former pop star Kerry Katona.

And one of the girls has announced she wants to be a pop star just like her parents.

However, Brian was quick to point out the pitfalls and advised her to finish school before she pursued her dream.

Speaking to The Irish Daily Star, he revealed he told her, "Complete your education before you chase a dream like that.

"Even if you're the best singer in the world, there's no guarantee you'll make it in this business.  I'd say it's 99 per cent luck and one per cent talent - it's like winning the lottery."

Brian is now married to Irish model Vogue Williams, and he said she gets on great really well with his daughters.

He added, "I love it that they are smarter than me about so many things, especially computers.

"They've also got very strong opinions about music - which I ignore."

As for any bad blood with their mum Kerry, Brian said that's all in the past.

"All that rubbish of the past and the disputes during our early 20s has all gone now.  We're both settled and it's great," he said.
