Vogue Williams has had her say after her ex-husband Brian McFadden said it was "pointless" for them to try to stay friends.

The 31-year-old TV presenter and model posted a cryptic message on social media, not long after an interview with the former Westlife star in which he spoke about moving on from life with his second wife.

"I really wish certain people would stop discussing me publicly," she wrote, accompanied by an eye roll emoji.

Until recently, the pair had appeared to have stayed on amicable terms in the wake of their divorce.

They even spent Christmas 2015 together and seemed to have achieved the impossible task of remaining friends with your ex.

However, Brian set tongues wagging this week after speaking about their three-year relationship and saying it's too hard to stay pals with his ex-wife.

"It's very difficult to remain friends unless you've got children. I think it's pointless as it's going to get in the way of you having a future with other people," he said.

The singer also said he had sent Vogue a "good luck" text before she appeared on the same reality show that he took part in, The Jump, but she ignored it.

Now dating teacher Danielle Parkinson, he said in the same interview that his eldest daughter Molly (15) was moving to his parents' home in Artane to start school here in September.

Vogue recently told the Diary how she was "burned" after her relationship with Brian and that she's much more cautious about speaking about her love life.

After months of staying friends, she said the pair are no longer in regular contact, and she has now sparked romance rumours with reality TV star Spencer Matthews, whom she co-starred with on Channel 4's The Jump.

"I think I got burnt the last time, I should have been a bit more careful," she said.

"It was too much in the public eye and I don't think there's any need for it and I don't want to have a relationship like that again."

When asked if her new man was indeed Matthews, she said she was determined to keep her cards close to her chest.

"I'm not going to tell you who it is. It might be and it might not be," she said.

"I'm very happy at the moment, but I was really happy on my own.

"One of my friends is single and he hates being single and I'm like, you need to figure out how to be happy on your own before you can actually be with someone else.

"They bring extra happiness, they don't bring the happiness."
