Nicky Byrne reminisces on Croke Park days

DJ, presenter – and charming MC last night – also confirms release is on the horizon.

At one point, HP couldn’t help but notice him chatting with Gavin James, just 24 hours before he supports Ed Sheeran at Croke Park. Was the Westlife man doling out a bit of advice?

“It didn’t come up, actually,” Nicky laughed. “I don’t think I could describe it anyway. The first couple of minutes when you go on stage are insane. You can’t hear anything. You can’t even breathe, never mind sing. Your mouth dries up. It’s just a wall of noise, a cauldron.”

Westlife capped their career with a pair of dates at HQ – unsurprisingly, they’re stand-out memories in Byrne’s mind.

“It was an amazing way to finish. It was weird though; you knew you were going to wake up the following morning unemployed! You were never going to do that again, but what memories.”

And a new chapter of his musical career is just around the corner too; Byrne confirmed that a solo album is progressing very nicely indeed.

“I’ve been co-writing with Wayne Hector,” he reports. “He wrote ‘Flying Without Wings’, and he’s worked with Nicki Minaj and One Direction too. I’ve literally squeezed it in after radio on the days that I could. I obviously had the TV show too; this explains why it took so long, if I’m honest!”

But there’s no fear of Byrne jacking in his 2fm gig; “I couldn’t,” he smiled. “I just love it too much.”

Nicky Byrne in a world of his own after winning Radio Award for Best Newcomer

The 2FM star took home the gong just months after starting at the station.

Former Westlife star Nicky Byrne was in a world of his own last night – after winning a top radio award.
The 2FM presenter won the Best Newcomer gong at the prestigious PPI Radio Awards, just months after starting on the station.
It was a massive coup for the Nicky Byrne Show host, whose three hour show has now become the most listened to programme on the station.

However the RTE star didn’t managed to win both of the gongs he was up for – with Dermot and Dave taking home Best Music Programme.
Initially after being nominated, Nicky said he was “beyond chuffed” to just be nominated.
He said: “I’m beyond chuffed with the two nominations for the show. Jenny, along with producer Al, Lindy and Kate have become my on-air family.”

Strictly Come Dancing tour 2014

Susanna Reid, Abbey Clancy, Deborah Meaden and Nicky Byrne have all been confirmed for the Strictly Come Dancing 2014 live tour.

They will join Natalie Gumede, Mark Benton and Ben Cohen – who left the current series last weekend – in a star-studded line up set to travel to ten different venues in nine different UK cities.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli will also be on hand to give their expert feedback and all important scores – with former Strictly favourite Lisa Riley returning to the glitterball dance floor as host.

Choreographer Craig directs the live show for the fourth year running.

“Strictly is intense, absorbing, enormously demanding and endlessly enjoyable,” said BBC Breakfast host Susanna.

“I’m thrilled I’m going to be part of the tour, I’ll be making sure I’m on top form, to put on the best show possible for the wonderful arena audiences around the country.”

Model Abbey added: “I’m having the time of my life on Strictly this year and I am so excited to be joining the 2014 tour.

“Dancing in some of the biggest arenas around the country is such a great opportunity and I can’t wait to thank everyone for the support I’ve received on the TV series.”

Deborah Meaden added she was “gutted” her Strictly run had ended, saying the chance to wear “those fabulous costumes and dance with the gorgeous Robin again is too good to miss!”

The multi-million pound production will open at the Birmingham NIA on 17 January 2014.

Strictly fans get to watch the celebrity dancing couples competing live for the TV judges’ votes and then get to vote themselves with their mobile phones.
