Former Westlife heart-throb Brian McFadden has put his solo career on hold to become a dutiful house-husband while his wife KERRY pursues her movie career.

The ex-ATOMIC KITTEN singer and winner of British reality TV show I'M A CELEBRITY... Get Me Out Of Here! is currently filming her first movie role in SHOWBAND - a drama set in the 1960s against the backdrop of the showband era.

However, her big screen break has forced husband Brian to look after their daughters, MOLLY and LILLY SUE at home.

He says, "Kerry is filming a movie for the next five weeks or six weeks so I won't see too much of her.

"It's a film called Showband which is shooting in Galway, Ireland.

"Kerry plays the lead singer of a sixties showband. It's going very well. She is very excited and is really enjoying it."

The Irish chart-topper, who has recently changed the spelling of his first name from BRYAN to Brian, is due to release his debut solo single REAL TO ME next month (SEP04).
