Singer says he was like their baby brother


Boyzone will never recover from the loss of Stephen Gately, according to Westlife‘s Shane Filan.

The singer, 30, saw how devastated the group were at the 33-year-old’s funeral in Dublin this month.

‘They will probably never get over it,’ Shane tells The Sun. 

‘It’s hard to put into perspective what’s happened to them as a band.

‘The lads were always looking after him like a baby brother.’

Stephen was found dead at his holiday home in Majorca on 10 October.
