He attended the Billie Barry Stage School and had an avid interest in singing, dancing and football.

It was obvious from the start that Brian Mc Fadden and Delta Goodrem‘s relationship wouldn’t last. They fell in love after Brian asked Delta to duet on his song Almost Here – written all about his break up from Kerry Katona. When they got together it seemed like the biggest slap in the face for poor Kerry.
Not only had her husband left her but he quickly hooked up with a woman younger, skinnier and with the prettiest skin in showbiz. I don’t need to be Now’s astrologer David Wells to predict it won’t be long before he’s knocking on their door.
There was something troubling about Brian and Delta though. When the boys got back together in November Brian Tweeted: ‘I would love to do an album with the boys and show JLS and Take That what we are really made of!As hard as I’ve tried, I’ve never quite managed to work out just how he managed to pull her. If the boys wanna challenge these newcomers I am up for a fight.’ Of course you are Brian, but we’re sad to say that like Kerry, they’re doing pretty well on their own.Here is a man who has honed his look around always appearing like he’s in need of a good wash and a shave. I thank her for giving me the best years of my life. She, on the other hand, looks so baby clean she probably squeaks when she walks. And I say that with a heavy heart, as he was always my favourite in Westlife. Their careers got in the way, he’s been spending time in Australia while she’s been writing songs in LA, they still respect each other yadda yadda.
