WESTLIFE star BRYAN McFADDEN wants to become the President of Ireland after quitting the chart-topping boyband.

The tubby singer, 23, will be eligible for the non-political role as soon as he turns 35 and he is determined to run - if only so he can keep the superstar lifestyle he has become accustomed to.

He says, "I'm deadly serious. When the time comes I'll run for president. I think I'd be very good - but I'm too young at the moment.

"Look at it this way, you get a huge house, a private jet and about 15 security guards."
