Brian jets in for a night on the tiles with Dublin pals

Former Westlife star, Brian McFadden certainly hasn't lost his love of partying since quitting Ireland to join his fiancée, Delta Goodrem in Oz four years ago.

The Diary can reveal the dad of two, who jetted into town for an impromptu visit to his parents' home in Artane, worked through his jetlag to join a number of pals for a night on the tiles last Friday night, just hours after touching down at Dublin airport.

Brian was seen letting his hair down at Northside hotspot, the Wright Venue in Swords, just after his youngest daughter, Lilly-Sue, celebrated her seventh birthday.

The star flew to Dublin on a Delta airlines flight earlier that day, having cheekily accepted an invitation offered to his longterm girlfriend to fly on her namesake airline at a special rate.

Brian was joined at the venue by Boyzone singer, Shane Lynch, who booked out the club's exclusive New York suite for a night out with a number of pals.

The former boyband singer, who quit Westlife in 2004, is due to release a new album this month, and will also make a series documenting the creation of a boyband alongside Australian DJ Kyle Sandilands later this year.
