The Dublin singer has already recorded about eight songs and plans to create a full album.

Former Westlife star Nicky Byrne has secretly been following his bandmates lead and recording a solo album.

The Dublin singer has already recorded about eight songs and plans to create a full album.

But Strictly sensation Nicky – who is carving out a career as a TV presenter – is yet to be signed up by a record label.

However the 35-year-old is hoping to be able to get a big-money deal once he has an album ready to sell – like ex-bandmate Kian Egan.

A source said: “Nicky had no plans to get back in the studio for a long time after the split, but he was asked to record a track for a movie.

“Going in front of the microphone again spurred that love of music in him, and he’s been working on a number of his own songs.

“It’s a work in process but he has about eight tracks ready to go – and when it’s finished then he’d be looking for a label. Continue reading »

Back in 2012, Nicky Byrne of Westlife fame Cha Cha Cha’d his way into the quarter finals of Strictly Come Dancing, just missing out on a place in the semi finals after a tense dance off with Denise Van Outen. Now, he’s hitting the dance floor once again in the quest to pick up the glittering disco ball trophy on the Strictly Tour 2014. Alongside 2013 alumni including Ben Cohen, Natalie Gumede and winner Abbey Clancy, Nicky will be frugging his way across the country in a tour that promises to be as camp as a Dale Winton house party. Just how does he feel about swapping all that key-changing stool standing for some tight Lycra? We had the terribly difficult task of listening to his gorgeous Irish accent to find out…realitytv_scd_0112_5

So So Gay: Nicky, how excited are you to be slipping on your dancing shoes once again?

Nicky: Very excited, although they were a little dusty when I found them – but nothing a little bit of scrubbing didn’t sort out.

And how does it feel to be back with your dance partner Karen Hauer? Did it take a while to get the technique back together, or did the two of you hit it off again straight away?

It all came back quickly actually! Karen and her boyfriend Kevin [Clifton], who is also on the show, came to Dublin for a night in early January, so we hooked up for a few hours, went over our dances from 2012 and boom, I was back! A bit like Fred Astaire…

What sort of dances can we expect to see from you on the tour?

I am doing the Argentine Tango and Charleston – which, by the way, is the best Charleston this side of the Mississippi, like my Twitter bio reads.

Out of all the dancing couples, who do you think is your biggest competition?

Mark [Benton] and Iveta [Lukosiute].

What’s your favourite style of dance to perform and why?

That’s a tough one. Hmm, probably the Argentine Tango we did to the Bond theme ‘Skyfall’, but the Charleston is a great laugh also. Actually, I cannot choose between them.

Craig Revel Horwood was never very complimentary about you when he judged you on the show. What are you going to do to change his mind now you’ve got a second chance?

Craig is Craig. He criticised me every week on the TV show and why, I’ll never know, but on the tour I’m determined to impress him, and all the judges actually. Hard work and doing your best goes a long way, so we’ll see. Continue reading »
