Westlife: And then there were four...

Sad news came for music fans today when Westlife announced the amicable departure of Bryan McFadden from the band, but the boys have no plans to split and will continue as a four-piece.

As Bryan McFadden departs Westlife the remaining boys intend to solider on and confirmed plans for the next studio album.

They appealed to fans for their support, "We want Westlife to last. It's in the hands of our fans. We need their support right now and so does Bryan."

Bryan hugs Kian

The news came as a shock to the band who are sorry to see him go. Kian Egan read a tearful tribute, "We understand and respect your decision. From the bottom of our hearts, we love you".

Westlife are now a four piece

Bryan added "It's been very difficult to juggle two lives and especially since Lily was born, I haven't been able to commit 100 percent to Westlife or to my family. I felt it was the right time to leave. Now I want to concentrate on my family".

Louis Walsh at Bryan's departure

Bryan dismissed rumours that he's planning to work with Kerry and announced he's gonna be a house husband for the time being!

There are no plans to replace Bryan in the band. Westlife have often rehearsed as a four-piece so any adjustments needed are minor.

Shane Filan is adamant "We're gonna go on. It's gonna be hard, but we've a job to do".

Tearful Westlife fans

Devastated fans gathered outside the Four Seasons hoping to say goodbye to Bryan. Grace Moore (16) is Westlife's self-proclaimed number one fan. She said "it's over now. It's just such a shock. I'll continue to support them, but it won't be the same". Aisling O'Leary added "I think they'll break up after one more album".
