Nicky pops the cork

WESTLIFE star Nicky Byrne was more loved up than ever this week when he wined and dined his wife Georgina Ahern in London to celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary.

The couple are currently based in Britain along with their twin sons, Rocco and Jay (3), while Nicky and his bandmates Shane Filan, Mark Feehily and Cian Egan record material for their new album.

The group recently signed up to work with six-time Grammy nominee, John Shanks, who is responsible for teen sensation Miley Cyrus's new album, Can't Be Tamed.

However, the romantic Nicky (31) was determined not to neglect his childhood sweetheart on their special day and even posted a romantic tribute to her on his Twitter page.

"A very happy seventh wedding anniversary to my beautiful wife," Nicky wrote. "Here's to gazillions more."

The star also took some time out of his busy schedule to show his other half a good time, planning a night out at an exclusive restaurant.

"They've been in London all week, where they've been celebrating in style," said a source close to the star.

"They're also planning a trip back to the Chateau D'Esclimont in Gallardon,France, where they wed seven years ago, later this year," they added.

Before then, however, the star will join his bandmates for an intimate gig in front of 1,000 fans at the O2 next week.

The concert will be streamed live from the venue on the O2's website blueroom.ie.

Nicky is also due back on the airwaves next Sunday afternoon for his new weekly gig spinning discs alongside 2fm star Michael Cahill from 5pm to 7pm.
