They've been married for 12 years and Shane and Gillian Filan look more in love than ever.

The former Westlife singer and his wife made a stylish appearance in Dublin as he wrapped filming a slot on Pat Kenny's new interview show, In The Round on UTV.

The mum-of-three was the epitome of spring chic in a pair of ripped black denim jeans and white blazer, while Shane looked dapper in a checkered blazer.

They might be one of Ireland's most famous couples, but Gillian doesn't court the attention that comes with her star status and instead they have largely kept away from making joint appearances, only returning to the spotlight in recent months.

She has been a constant by her husband's side after overcoming their financial troubles and now supporting his solo career.

He recently gushed about his long-term partner, whom he met when he was just 13 years in Sligo and the pair began dating in the early days of Westlife.

"Sometimes you feel a bit soppy, but I was very lucky to find Gillian - I have Sligo to thank for that - and if you love someone like that you should say it. We have an amazing relationship, we're very loyal to each other and very honest," he said.

''She kept me positive and focused on the future. The day I told her it was so bad that we could lose the house her reaction was 'we could live in a cardboard box and we'd still be happy'. What a ****ing answer."
