Westlife's Mark Feehily reveals coffee van business venture

Mark Feehily has opened up about his new career as caterer. The 34-year-old former Westlife singer, who had 26 top ten hits with the Irish group, has recently embarked on a new business venture – selling crepes and hot drinks from a mobile coffee shop.

"It's going really well," Mark told Today FM presenter Eoghan McDermott. "We've got loads of interest and we've booked it in with a lot of the music festivals and we're talking about doing some Irish ones as well.

Mark has continued to perform music under his full name Markus Feehily


"People were flabbergasted at the fact that I was in the van making crepes," he added. "People kind of have this thing 'Oh, he was in Westlife a few years ago and now he's making tea'."

But Mark, who has continued to make music since Westlife's split two years ago, was quick to defy his critics, saying that as a lover of food and festivals, the van is both a business and a hobby.

"It's my business and I love it," he said. "Anything I get involved in I get involved 110%.

"A couple of Irish people came up and were like 'Wait a minute, what are you doing in a van?' "I love festivals, so why not?"
