Morgan Deane moves on from Graeme Smith marriage split with new song

Irish singer Morgan Deane is throwing herself into her music in the wake of her divorce.
The former Eurovision backing singer for Jedward announced her split from South African cricketer Graeme Smith last month after three years of marriage.
Deane, who reportedly discovered her husband wanted a divorce via text message, released her new single Take Me On The Floor on Soundcloud.
She shared the exciting news on Twitter and has been making appearances at radio stations in her adopted home of Cape Town to promote the tune.
Deane and Smith enjoyed a whirlwind six month romance before marrying in South Africa in 2011 and she has largely kept a low profile since the move. Morgan previously enjoyed fame with now defunct Irish pop group Industry, alongside model Michele McGrath and kitchen guru Donal Skehan before the move.
Morgan, who has two children with her husband, hinted on Twitter that he has moved on with a new relationship, a claim which the woman he was linked to denies.
"When you find out the 3rd persons name....... You always know them," Morgan wrote on Twitter after reports began circulating about his reported new relationship.
In March, Morgan reportedly learned of her husband's divorce intentions via an accidental text message.
It's now being reported that Morgan believed he was eager to reconcile their differences and agreed to attend couple's counselling sessions before receiving a text meant for someone else. But the situation came to a head after the Cork native returned to Cape Town after an Irish holiday to catch up with her family.
An intermediary, who said he was working on behalf of Graeme, gave her the contact number of a lawyer. He then is said to have text the mediator asking why 'Morgan had been informed, because he wanted to tell her himself'.
