Westlife star NICKY BYRNE always insists on taking the stairs - because he's terrified of elevators. The Flying Without Wings singer admits his bizarre phobia is so bad, he would often skip business appointments just to avoid facing his fear. He says, "I'm not good at getting into elevators. If they look slightly ropey, even if the meeting's on the 30th floor, I just won't get in. "I'll walk or I won't go to the meeting. I'd rather miss something than get in an elevator!"
