Him too? Shane Filan admits he’s ‘shocked’ by Brian and Vogue’s split

Less than 48hours ago, Brian McFadden and his model/DJ wife Vogue Williams announced on Twitter that had ended their three-year marriage.

And it looks like we weren’t the only ones who didn’t see it coming: Brian’s former Westlife bandmate, Shane Filan, has now revealed that he he was equally surprised by the announcement.

Shane, 35, said to Now magazine that he was “really shocked” and noted how Brian hadn’t given him any clues of the impending separation.

“I chatted to him a couple of weeks ago about something that was golf related but yeah I’m really shocked.”

Yesterday, Shane was at a Warner Music Group summer drinks party where he admitted he had actually never met Vogue, 29, and that he hasn’t seen Brian in the flesh in a number of years.

He furthermore admitted he wasn't in the loop about Brian's other former flame, Kerry Katona, and her recent relationship woes, and went on to say that he hoped Brian is OK.

Mr Filan added of his new album: “I’ve been working on it for the last four or five months." The Sligo-native explained that it will be more “pop music” compared to his last album.

He didn’t mention anything about any music collaborations, but we can probably rule out any surprise duets with him and Brian.
