Brian McFadden has spoken candidly on his two failed marriages.

The singer (35) who is back in the spotlight with a new solo tour and album, announced his split with second wife, model and blogger Vogue Williams (29) in July after nearly three years of marriage.

He was previously married to Kerry Katona (35) from 2002 to 2006 and they have two children together Molly (14) and Lilly (12).

But McFadden, who still lives with Vogue in London, said he isn't turned off by the idea of another marriage in search of his happily ever after.

"In America, most people get married more than once," he told the Sunday World.

"I'd rather be happy and have a few failed marriages, than one marriage and be unhappy.

"People are always waiting to hear a bad side to someone's story, but there's nothing. Me and her had our personal reasons and we've remained friends and that's it. We've moved on and we're both happy."

Meanwhile, newly single Vogue wrote in her column for the Sunday World that she is "getting good" at being alone.

“After two weeks away  I’m starting to miss Ireland and London, all my friends of course, my pooch Winston,” she wrote.

“I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to spending time alone, but I’m getting good at it.”

“I’ve even been going for lunch on my own while my friends are at work!”
