EXCLUSIVE: WESTLIFE'S MARK: I'M GAY
SHOWBIZ EXCLUSIVE
By Caroline Hedley
W ESTLIFE star Mark Feehily (second from left) opened his heart yesterday to reveal that he is gay.

The 25-year-old pin-up said: "I want people to know the truth. I am gay and I'm very proud of who I am.

"I'm not asking for sympathy, or to be a role model for someone else.

"I simply felt it was the right time to tell the truth."

Mark, who is in a relationship with singer Kevin McDaid, 21, said: "In the past I haven't felt the need to say anything about my sexuality.

"But I want people to know I'm very comfortable with who I am."

Mark and Kevin, who was in boy band V, met a few months ago.


Mark said: I'm not worried about how people react because I'm happy being who I am.


"I'm still the same person the day I was before. I'm sure Westlife fans will be pleased I'm happy. I don't think it changes anything."


Mark said: "All the lads in Westlife have settled down and are in relationships, so why can't I be?"


Loyal bandmates Kian Egan, 25, Shane Filan, 26, and Nicky Byrne, 26, all knew Mark was gay but have never spoken about it in public.


It's now 5.30am and Westlife are watching the sun come up from the terrace of Westlife's £1,000-a-night Ritz Carlton beach villa in Bahrain.


It's the penultimate night of the band's 56-date world tour and, having spent five hours necking champagne and ice, Shane is a bit worse for wear.


In a few weeks, his wife Gillian will give birth and the 26-year-old is finding it hard to concentrate on anything but the impending arrival.


The couple are expecting a girl and they've already named her Nicole. Nursing a grainy mobile phone picture of the scan, Shane coos: "Isn't she just beautiful? I just can't wait to be a daddy.


"I was speaking to Brian McFadden the other day and he keeps telling me how fatherhood's the best thing ever. To experience it will be incredible."


Just as things are in danger of becoming overly sentimental, Mark retreats to the kitchen and returns with two pints of nearly-neat vodka.


Glugging on one, he hands me the other with an assurance that it will "get me going".


Meanwhile the other inebriated lads debate whether to jump into their private pool, fully-clothed. It seems being in each other's company so much brings out their inner teens.


"We've been together seven years and we're pretty much like family," says Shane.


Kian, 25, agrees, saying: "The thing is we don't have egos among ourselves. A lot of bands have split up due to ego clashes - people getting above themselves and thinking they can do things by themselves.


"I would hate to do this by myself. I wouldn't like travelling around the world on my own."


Nicky, 26, chips in, "We were lucky to make it but it's even harder to stay successful - there are always new kids on the block. A lot of the new bands want to go to heaven but none of them want to die. No one wants to do that hard work."


After seven years at the top, do they still get starstruck?


"Kevin Spacey was pretty cool - very funny. And meeting Pope John Paul II was special," says Shane.


Westlife have had 12 No.1 singles and played to over three million fans on four sell-out arena tours. And they're not planning to stop.


I READ somewhere that we were going to call it a day in 18 months' time," says Shane. "That's bulls**t.


"If our next album's successful we'll make another one. We are still selling out concerts all over the world and it's a fantastic job."


Not that it's all work and no play. The boys boozed heavily in the early days and still like a drink or three.


"We're not as bad now but we still go out two or three nights a week and get absolutely plastered," admits Kian. "But we have to stay in shape and we work out most days, even when we really don't feel like it."


His face lights up when he gets a text from his girlfriend, Jodi Albert


The ex-Hollyoaks star is ready to walk down the aisle, but he won't be tied down just yet.


"I'm always taking the mickey out of her and saying I want five kids, so maybe the idea is settling in her brain," he laughs.


"But as for marriage, well we've only been together two years...


"You've got to be with someone for at least five years before you settle down. we're both young."


Shane is wed to Gillian Walsh and Nicky is married to Irish premier's daughter Georgina Ahern.


"That's just the way it is at the moment and I'm cool with it," he insists. "I'm building a house in Ireland and when I'm not working that takes up most of my time."


They are now gearing up to take part in a promotion with Pepsi Max Downloaded.


"We're very excited about it," says Shane. "Fans buy Pepsi Max and text a number. If they win, they get to work behind the scenes with us for a day at a one-off gig, which will be held in their hometown."
