Kerry's hoping for a family break with Brian and their daughters

Kerry Katona – who was dumped by boyfriend of one month Dan Foden, 28, over Easter – has invited ex-husband Brian McFadden, 31, to go away with her and their daughters Lilly-Sue, eight, and Molly in August.

Brian, 31, is single after splitting with Aussie fiancée Delta Goodrem and insiders say that having spent time with his girls, he’d love to resurrect his career in the UK.

Brian was hoping the Westlife boys would invite him back like Take That did with Robbie Williams,’ says a source.

‘He’s going back to Oz in the short-term but he’d love to move back here permanently and see more of the girls.’

Although he’s mulling over the holiday proposal, Brian‘s worried about ruining his friendship with Kerry, 30.

‘He respects her as the mother of his children but he doesn’t want to send her any false signals,’ says a friend.

‘He knows Molly‘s desperate to have them both together for her birthday and he’d like to go, but he needs to have a few conversations with Kerry first and make sure it’s not the start of anything else.’
