McFadden happy to be back on stage

Brian McFadden has moved back to the UK after a two-year stint in Australia

Former Westlife star Brian McFadden said he is delighted to be back on stage but would happily give it all up to become a "stay-at-home dad".

The singer, 33, who has moved back to London with his wife Vogue after a stint in Australia, said it was the experience of his first UK tour in eight years that persuaded them to come back.

He told Hello! Magazine: "We only really decided to move back when we got back."

The couple, who married in Tuscany in September, lived in Sydney for two years - though Vogue admits she missed her family.

"I've never met anybody who has so many close friends," said Brian. "I think she was probably getting a bit edgy in Australia, just being the two of us."

Brian decided to release a new album and tour again after supporting his mentor Ronan Keating this year.

He said: "It was my first time touring in eight years and I didn't know how it was going to be. When I got such a good response after the first few gigs, I thought if ever I was going to come back and put an album out and do a tour, this was obviously the time."

Vogue, 27, said they would like to start a family. Brian has two daughters Molly, 11, and Lilly, 10, from his first marriage. She said: "I don't feel I'm in any rush, but it's one of the reasons I wanted to make a base here. I think 30 would be a good age - I still have lots of things I want to achieve."

Brian said: "I'd like to see Vogue concentrate on her career. I'd be happy to be a stay-at-home dad."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

You'll have to make an emotional appeal to your boss. Unless things change, you might have to find another job. You're a very tolerant person, but you can't handle toxic behaviour. A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
