Brian McFadden set tongues wagging over the weekend after being spotted with a new lady at Keith Duffy's golf classic.

The former Westlife star was one of the celebrities who teed off for a worthy cause at Roganstown Golf Club in north county Dublin.

The singer (36) was joined at the event for his Boyzlife co-star by a photogenic female friend by the name of Danielle Parkinson, who flew over from the UK to be there.

She certainly looked the part of the perfect golf partner, dressed in grey leggings, pink trainers and a black fitness top.

A source said she ­accompanied him around the course and the pair clearly knew each other well, sparking suggestions that they could be more than just good friends.

McFadden, who split from second wife Vogue Williams last year, recently spoke about how he was looking for a new girlfriend.

This time around, the ITV presenter said, he wants someone who can cook.

"I've had three partners - Kerry, Delta, Vogue. Not one could cook anything. Takeaways and dinners out the whole time," he said. "The next woman I'm going to meet, I'm going to hope she can cook, just so I can stop eating takeaways. I'm going to have to go on Tinder and go 'I'm looking for a chef'."

Other attendees at Saturday's event included TV presenter Brian Ormond, veteran comedian Syl Fox and ex-footballers Ronnie Whelan and Lee Sharpe.

The golf classic was held in order to drum up funds for three charities close to Duffy's heart - namely Cliona's Foundation, The Hub, and Fighting Blindness.

Invaluable

He said that all three organisations provide "invaluable work" and offer much-needed services to the community.
