Irish singer Kian Egan is convinced his life changed forever the day his beloved father died.
The Westlife star's dad, Kevin, passed away earlier this year (09) after a battle with cancer, and his death hit the 29 year old hard.
Egan says, "For anybody that loses a parent or someone quite close it changes your whole view on life. It makes you view life in a different way.
"What was extremely important before - how successful we were as a band - kind of disappears a bit. That's not really what life is about even though (my dad was a) massive fan of Westlife. My dad used to go out and buy the paper every day to see if we were in it."
