Singer says he’s become a fitness freak

Westlife star Shane Filan has revealed he’s become a fitness fanatic in a bid to get a perfectly-toned bod.

The singer, 28, says he got into a more active lifestyle because he felt chubby.

‘I was unhappy with my body,’ he admits. ‘I was maybe a ½ or ¾ of a stone overweight. I just wanted to be leaner and fitter. Mainly to be fitter, to have more energy and have a better lifestyle.’

Now Shane visits the gym regularly for a workout.

‘I’ve got a whole new lease of life in the last 2 months,’ he tells Now Online. ‘I’ve never felt better in my life.’

See Shane for yourself in the flesh when the boys sign copies of Back Home at Harrods on Monday 5 November.

The signing will take place from 10am (make sure you’re there earlier to see the boys arrive in the famous horse drawn carriage at 9.30am), during which time you’ll be handed an envelope.

If yours contains a golden ticket, congratulations – you’ve won the chance to watch an exclusive performance by the boys straight afterwards, plus a goody bag!
