Westlife star reveals sadness over break-up

WESTLIFE star Mark Feehily has split from his long-term partner Kevin McDaid.

The couple got engaged in February 2010, but Mr Feehily announced the break-up via his Twitter account on New Year's Eve.

In a short message, the Sligo-born singer said he was grateful to all his fans for providing the couple with such support over the years.

"Sadly, Kevin and I are no longer together," he wrote.

"We've had an amazing seven years and are both so thankful for the love and support you have shown us from the start."
