I don't like spoiling the surprise at this time of year, so I'm not going to tell you what Brian McFadden and his wife Vogue are getting each other for Christmas.
Last year, the ex-Westlife pop star gave his wife black Christian Louboutin boots and leather pants, while she got him a guitar. What for, says you? Be nice, it's Crimbo.
The golden couple, who live in London, went to friend Lynn's birthday party last weekend in Dublin (Brian played Birmingham the previous night, the Friday, while Vogue went to the Haim concert at the Academy in Dublin with her sister Amber).
The next morning the happy pair were spotted at the market in Howth and walking the beach with their dog Winston. "We are very boring," the model-turned-TV star told me last Tuesday in town. She was wearing a black witch's hat ("It's a Fedora!") and thigh-high boots that made her look like she was going angling with Jack Charlton.
In fact, this morning Vogue is actually going away with Brian. They're heading out at the crack of dawn for Malaga -- and then on to to her mother Sandra and stepdad Neil's place in Sotogrande -- for five days.
