Former Westlife star Brian McFadden is willing to return to Ireland in a bid to gain custody of his children with British reality TV star Kerry Katona.
The singer moved to Australia following his divorce from Katona in 2004, and set up home with Aussie singer Delta Goodrem.
He sees his two daughters with the former Atomic Kitten star for several weeks throughout the year, but has vowed to chase custody of them after Katona hit the U.K. tabloids for snorting cocaine and reportedly assaulting her accountant.
And MCFadden is ready to swap his life in sunnier climes to head back to his homeland.
In an Australian TV interview, he says, "If we do have to go to a full custody battle I will come back to Ireland. All I care about now is making sure the kids are happy and safe."
And the singer is considering offering Katona a deal - six months away from the children to get herself together.
He adds, "Let her go sort her life out and whatever problems she is having she needs to go get it fixed and in six months to a year they can go back."
The former couple wed in 2002 and divorced in 2004. MCFadden is now engaged to Goodrem.
